Safe Routes National Partnership takes CLIF’s 2 Mile Challenge

Presenting the RED TEAM!

Dear Friends,

CLIF 2 Mile ChallengeThe Safe Routes to School National Partnership (National Partnership) is pleased to be a part of the CLIF 2 Mile Challenge as the 2011 RED TEAM. And we need your help! Sign up under the RED TEAM, log your bike trips, and you’ll earn valuable points that will help the National Partnership win a share of $100,000!

The 2 Mile Challenge highlights CLIF Bar’s commitment to bicycle advocacy and the fight against climate change, inspiring thousands to avoid 100,000 car trips and awarding $100,000 total in grants to three national nonprofits — we are joined by the Alliance for Biking and Walking and 350.org, as well as grants to grassroots initiatives across the country.

Individuals earn points for themselves and their teams (Go RED TEAM!) by avoiding a car trip and riding their bikes, logging miles, challenging friends and sharing their progress through social media. Watch this great video to get you rolling.

Each team is a winner in reducing car trips and promoting bicycle advocacy, with the winning team collecting $35,000 — help us win! We encourage our partner affiliates, local and state Safe Routes to School coordinators and community volunteers to spread the word through Facebook or Twitter and encourage everyone you know to join the RED TEAM on the CLIF 2 Mile Challenge.

The Challenge runs until October 31 and we will provide updates throughout the summer and fall with tips for earning points and spreading the word. Our first two tips:

  • When you register use the connect to Facebook link for five extra points
  • Register your children as well as yourself

Hopping on a bike to reduce car trips and logging your participation is a great way to help the Safe Routes to School National Partnership. Thanks in advance for your help!

Ride on,

Deb Hubsmith, Director
