There’s still a month left in the Walk Bike Ride Challenge and so far Wallingfordians have saved 2,599 miles of driving.

The Walk Bike Ride Challenge is a two-month cycle that encourages drivers to walk, ride their bikes or take the bus. So far Wallingford is in fourth place for the number of participants and driving miles saved and trips switched from cars to other modes of transportation.

You can still register for the program. Convert at least two car trips per week and you could win a prize for each trip cut. The Seattle Department of Transportation will send weekly emails with tips.

The more trips one reports, the higher the chance they have of winning these prizes:

  • Electric bike from e-Moto
  • Apple iPad
  • Pan Pacific Hotel stay
  • Zipcar $250 gift card
  • REI $100 gift card
  • Nordstrom’s $100 gift card (supplied by Commute Seattle)
  • $100 gift card good at seven farmers’ markets
