Spend a day bicycling and doodling
Spend a day on your bicycle -- without using any fossil-fueled form of transport -- then doodle about your experience.

Doodlers who get around by bicycle: Start doodling about your bike ride! Do-gooder website GOOD
wants you to “pick a day and avoid using any kind of carbon-burning vehicles (cars, buses, mopeds, etc.), and then draw a doodle that illustrates your experiences.”
If you celebrated Weekend Without Oil
last weekend, you can just get doodling about that green experience. Your doodling reward: A chance to win a GOOD T-shirt and free subscription to GOOD magazine.
To get you started, I’ve found a couple green travel-friendly doodles to inspire you:
>> Look ma … no gas!
This T-shirt’s doodle design has cute, Dr. Seuss-esque whimsy — and can be yours for $20. Proceeds go to C.I.C.L.E., a pro-bicycling nonprofit in Los Angeles.
>> Bicycling Cop Dave
: This online graphic novel has as its hero a cop on a bike, “patrolling the underside of gentrification."
>> The Boys and the Subway
. This last one is not about bikes, but is about another more sustainable form of transportation — the New York Subway! “My sons Arthur, 5, and Gustav, 3, are obsessed with the New York City subway system,” reveals The New York Times’ Abstract City illustrator-blogger-storyteller Christoph Niemann — who goes on to illustrate his sons’ love for the subway system in a way that'll make you want to memorize your local subway map, too.
