February 15, 2011

February 15, 2011 -- If you're reading this blog, chances are you ride the bus and already live a pretty car free lifestyle. Hopefully you enjoy going green and want to encourage your family and friends to also go car free. Well, here's your chance! Applications are now being accepted for the Car Free Diet Skeptics Challenge.

Arlington residents who drive a lot now, but are willing to go car free for a month and share their experience online should go to and register. Two finalists will be chosen to complete the Skeptics Challenge and get everything they need to travel car free around Arlington and the DC area for up to a year:

  • A SmarTrip Card loaded with monthly fare value for riding ART, Metro, Metrobus and more
  • A Trek bicycle and cycling gear from Revolution Cycles and BikeArlington
  • A gift certificate from Potomac River Running
  • Membership to Capital Bikeshare
  • A Zipcar membership and monthly credits
  • A Flip camera to record your adventures

The deadline to apply is February 28, so apply soon! Ross and Todd are ready to pass on the torch. Could you or someone you know be the next Car Free Diet Skeptic?
