Announcement: Are you registered for the commuter challenge?
The annual focus on how we get about on our commutes is upon us again and TART Trails is once again hosting a week of breakfasts and events which this year includes a film at the State Theatre and the annual fajita and margarita fiesta at Red Mesa.
Last year, I applied my talents to Northwestern Michigan College’s team. In previous years, I’ve formed a freelancer cabal or signed up in the individual team division. I’m undecided this year, but wanted to help get the word out that registration is now open.
Have a team? Have a team name? A team captain? Or, are you a loner, a rebel? If so, sign up as an individual. The Challenge is open to everyone – individuals, families, groups of friends, schools, businesses, organizations, etc. so be creative.
Registration is FREE and closes Monday, May 27th
Smart Commute Week aims to raise awareness about how we commute and the opportunities to do so outside of sitting alone in a car, in traffic, with the sun beating down on us through the windshield, and exhaust filling our lungs–at least, that’s how I view it. It’s also a way to save money and stay healthy.
To earn points for your team, keep track of the miles that you walk, bike, carpool, or take the bus during the week of June 3rd through June 7th. More information available at: SmartCommuteTC.org.
If you’re looking for a bit of motivation to get on the bike, don’t forget this Sunday (May 5th) is Dinner & Bikes event at the City Bike Shop.
Traverse City’s TART Trails is a exemplar MyWHaT underwriter.
