- 2 Mile Challenge Reduces 470,000 Miles of Car Trips
Since our company’s humble beginning on Gary’s bike ride, the bicycle is in the CLIF Bar DNA. We love the bike for everything that it brings: fun, freedom and the fight against climate change, especially within 2 miles of where you live. We call it the 2 Mile Challenge.
This year’s 2 Mile Challenge welcomed thousands of registrants who helped avoid more than 65,000 car trips totaling upwards of 470,000 miles. From May 12 through October 31, participants logged bike trips to win points for their team to help us determine how to split up $100,000 in grants, which goes to some great nonprofit groups working for bike advocacy and the fight against climate change. Clif Bar has been proud to partner this year with the Alliance for Biking and Walking, the Safe Routes to School Partnership and 350.org in helping to motivate more people to get on their bikes.
Read more about the grant giving on the 2 Mile Challenge blog, including even more details about 2011 stats and how you can get involved.
