Dude, Where’s Your Car?

Car-free alternatives - technical directions.

Time to get out the WD-40 and tune-up your bike, deodorize those walking shoes, or buy a Metro card. DC Car-Free Day 2007 is September 18th and World Car-Free Day is September 22nd

These celebrations started as ad hoc affairs during the Oil Crisis of 1973 and became more organized in October 1994. This year, Chinese cities are participating.

Washington, DC has an alternative transportation-promoting Mayor and at least one bike-riding Council Member, Tommy Wells. You can join them by taking the Car Free Pledge (just for a day or so). Save some gas, and you might win a new bike.

And if you live in DC’s Ward 6, save a tree while you’re at it – read Tommy “Ten-Speed” Wells’ newsletter on the web.
