Walking to the store?

BAM. That’s a trip.

Walking back from the store?

BAM. That’s another trip.

Log your trips to a:

  • Grocery store

  • Restaurant

  • School

  • Library

  • Bank

  • Park

  • Friend’s house

  • Work

What's an active trip?

Anything that gets you moving or engaging with people. We’re all about giving you choices! As long as you’re not driving alone, it counts.

 

Biking • Carpooling • Riding the Bus 

Rollerblading • Running • Kayaking 

Walking • Swimming • Longboarding

How many active commutes did Jordan take on his first day of the competition?

  • Rode their bicycle to work

  • Walked to a meeting in the next neighborhood

  • Carpooled with colleagues back to work

  • Took the bus (with their bicycle) to D&W for groceries 

  • Rode their bicycle home with groceries in the basket 

  • Walked to the YMCA

  • Walked back home 

TRICK QUESTION - if they forget to log them, they didn't make any! Fortunately, Jordan wants to see his name on the leader board. They logged all SEVEN of their trips!
