Tell us more about why you are participating in Just Bike. What is your challenge, how did you choose it? Why should people support you? Why is cycling your preferred method of low-carbon transportation?

I'm going to do this challenge a little differently because I am already fundraising for a Board that I'm on (too many fundraisers, too little time!).

Though I want to raise as much money as possible for 350VT--because I think they do amazing work--for my own sake, I hope I don't raise a lot.

That's because I am going to penalize myself every time I decide to drive to somewhere within 3 miles of my house during July.  And a big penalty -- $20 each time.

Why do I believe in Just Biking? Really, there is no need for able-bodied me to drive. It's not good for the environment and cars make our communities less livable.

Exceptions: if it's full-on raining or will be torentially downpouring (this is the south--it can get nasty late afternoon); if I need to haul something I can't carry in a backpack (I currnetly don't have panniers or a trailer).
