Did you know that Sole Power participants have logged more than 180,000 miles of green commuting since 2011, which has saved 165,093.84 pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere, 8,406 gallons of gas, and more than $27,403? Human-powered commuting is a great way to exercise: It can be fun, it saves money, and it helps save the planet. Sole Power is a great way to get to work, have fun, save money and get fit over the summer. All of that fun stuff aside, it helps to reduce carbon emissions and save the planet.

Three ways to commute via Sole Power for the GoPro Mountain Games this weekend:

Use Eagle County’s amazing bike path, stretching all the way from Dotsero to East Vail, to commute to the GoPro Mountain Games.

Walk, run, skate or bike in between the different events.

Compete with friends to see who can log the most green commuting miles while attended the Mountain Games this weekend. Log your miles and have fun.
