How to get the most out of biking to work or events
Do you need a kick start to change your commute? Sole Power is your answer to get on your bike.
Sole Power is a Town of Vail Program to get community members out of their cars and onto their bikes. Starting in 2011, Sole Power is a free green commuting challenge for the Eagle Valley. The challenge runs from Memorial Day through Columbus Day. Ride as an indiviudal or with a team, track your miles and help lower emissions!
Did you know that Sole Power participants have logged over 180,000 miles of green commuting since 2011 which has saved 165,093.84 lbs of CO2 from entering the atmosphere, 8,406 gallons of gas, and over $27,403.56 in savings? 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 season. 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:
1. Use Eagle County's amazing bike path that stretches all the way from Dotsero to East Vail to commute to GoPro Mountain Games.
2. Walk, run, skate, or bike in between the different events.
3. 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!
