The GOOD Guide To Biking For The Planet
If you aren’t following the GOOD Magazine blog, you should start. They post tons of great information about good things for our planet.
From their Facebook Page:
GOOD is the global association of individuals, businesses, and nonprofits powering what works.
We are people, businesses, moms, kids, artists, organizations, policymakers, students, teachers, and engineers, all united in one simple idea, each elevated by being connected. Let’s do what works and never default to what doesn’t. more.
They’ve just introduced a new section to their site called The Good Guide To Biking For The Planet. This feature is crammed full of useful information, including stuff on how cycling helps the environment, riding techniques, busting bike myths, and how to gear yourself. The also have some info on advocacy as well as links to some helpful organizations. Yep, some of the information is stuff a true advocate, enthusiast or even a seasoned commuter might already know. It’s still a nice collection of good information that’s all in one, well designed place. Something that I will refer to quite often.
Of course, there is motive for pulling together all this content. The Guide is sponsored by Cliff Bar who is also putting on a fun promotion called the 2Mile Challenge. They are “out to collectively avoid 100,000 car trips, and give $100,000 to nonprofits along the way.” Their ultimate goal is to reduce the amount of short (less than 2 miles) trips by car and give the donation to one of three nonprofit organizations: Alliance For Biking and Walking, Safe Routes To School National Partnership or 350.org. If you support any of these organizations, please sign up, choose a team and get riding.
