This September, sign up for the CLIF® Bar 2 Mile Challenge™ and start logging your bike miles. For every bike trip you log, the CLIF® Bar 2 Mile Challenge will make a $1 donation to the Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation.
CLIF Bar will donate up to $10,000 so start logging your bike trips today!
CLIF Bar kicked-off the sixth annual 2 Mile Challenge™ in June, urging people to rethink their daily transportation and discover the fun and freedom of the bike.
Why 2 Miles?
In the U.S., 40 percent of all urban trips are two miles or less, and 90 percent of those trips are made by car! So CLIF Bar is partnering with bicyclists around the nation to donate to bike advocacy nonprofits when riders choose to pedal their bikes instead of drive their cars for trips two miles or less.
“As a company that makes food to support people on-the-go, we strive to help sustain the planet for a better future and hope to inspire others to make small changes in their everyday lives to protect the places where people play,” said Ryan Mayo, environmental activism manager at Clif Bar & Company.
CLIF Bar has a long-standing commitment to the bike community, and believes that bikes provide access to adventure and are vehicles for positive change across the country. The 2 Mile Challenge™ is a simple way to encourage people to get on the bike, share their passion with other riders and help spark a cycling movement in hopes of supporting bike friendly communities of the future.
Last year’s 2 Mile Challenge™ participants helped give away $100,000 for bike advocacy and climate change organizations by turning more than 65,000 car trips into bike trips during the program’s six-month team competition. And in choosing bikes over cars, participants prevented 433,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.
As the non-profit beneficiary this September, the Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation is at the forefront of making the greater Puget Sound region better for bikes. The CBCEF is hard at work on many levels, from teaching kids safe riding skills to supporting adults as they choose to bike, to encouraging businesses to be bike-friendly, to helping city governments design communities that make it easier to walk and bike.
CLIF has been a longtime Cascade event sponsor, and we’re please to receive their support through the 2 Mile Challenge.
Thanks to CLIF Bar for choosing us as the September beneficiary, and THANK YOU for biking and logging your miles!
