Tomorrow, September 22, is World Carfree day. The challenge is to reduce vehicle usage, either by a day, a week, or a month… and then see how much longer you can go. I started riding a bicycle this year so I could attempt such a goal, at least within a few miles of home.
In Madison, a group of companies and groups are sponsoring a Car-Free Challenge. I’ve signed up to participate for one day (again, options are one day, one week, or one month). I know, it’s only one day, and a Saturday nonetheless.Â But with my regular job, travelling from one end of town to the other would take me too long. Despite that, I have already started planning for Bike-to-Work Week 2008. Hopefully by then, I’ll be able to manage the 15-mile journey each way.
