Eagle County commuting challenge under way
August 5, 2010
VAIL, Colorado – The town of Vail, Vail Recreation District and ECO Trails are calling out to the community to find Eagle Valley residents with the most Sole Power as part of a new green commuting challenge under way through Oct. 15.
The new challenge is free and designed to encourage individuals and teams to use non-motorized transportation to and from work, running errands, social functions or wherever their destination may be.
Participants are asked to login at eaglevalleysolepower.org and then track daily miles.
During the challenge, participants can also track daily stats against other teams and riders, as well as calculate calories burned, gas money saved, carbon dioxide emissions eliminated and more. At the end of the challenge, prizes will be awarded to the top teams and individuals who achieved the most mileage and most trips. Over $1,000 in prizes will be given away throughout the challenge through weekly drawings for anyone logging miles within that week.
For more information on the Sole Power Challenge, call Kristen Bertuglia at 970-477-3455.
