Bike Month Day One: The Challenges

Bike Month is here – yippee! – and all over the country bike challenges are being thrown down. Like the Seattle org that’s donating cash for every 5 round trips a commuter rides, the Kennewick REI stores with schwag and prizes, and the overall Group Health Commute Challenge with lots of activities and lots of sponsors.

To further celebrate Bike Month, Street Films resurrects a bikeTV classic, where Hal Ruza (famous bike mechanic) humorously grades the bike locking ability of New Yorkers.

Check these cities for examples of more activities and the 50 ways to leave your car.

Also take note that the American Lung Association released it’s yearly report on air quality today.
