If your new year resolution’s going to be to drive less and bike more, get some digital motivation for your real-life action at Greenlight
. (via Treehugger
Self-described as “portal to a world of cycling, competition and community,” Greenlight serves as a hub for both casual and serious cyclists. Sign up, and Greenlight will let you track your own cycling miles — as well as create or join teams to track miles collectively and competitively. Plus, you can talk bikes, accessories, and cycling tips with your fellow Greenlight members.
Greenlight’s created by a bicycle company called Civia Cycles
, which promotes the bicycling lifestyle and names sustainability as one of the three principles for its business (the other two are passion and respect).
Want even more webby inspiration for your bicycling ways? Sign up for the Clif Bar 2 Mile Challenge
, which invites you to “put your mettle to the pedals” and set a bike challenge goal for yourself. Sign up and Clif will check in with you via email once a week so you can chart your progress — and compare it with those of other 2-Milers.
