It’s official! The Spokane County CTR (Commute Trip Reduction) Office has become Undriving’s newest Official Licensing Partner and will begin holding events summer 2014 – more to come. Welcome Spokane County to the Undriving Family!
We’re very pleased to announce that we surpassed 15,000 Undrivers in 2013! Big thanks to Undriving’s Founding Licensing Partner Intercity Transit (Olympia, WA), our Official Licensing Partner Sound Transit (Seattle, WA), and our Official Event Partner, King County Metro (Seattle, WA), for their great work bringing their own Undriver Licensing Stations to events around the […]
Today, as part of my Undriving pledge I’m working in Minnesota, with a community of neighbors, to convince the City of Roseville to close road to allow “one entrance” to a 10 acre single family housing community adjacent to little Lake Johanna. This will have the effect of creating a safe and beautiful non-motorized connection, […]
Levine Family Undriving highlights from week three: Daily walking trips to Ballard for groceries and other errands. More walking = more Newmans Ginger O’s with whole milk! After 15 miles of biking to appointments on Wednesday, I discovered that my recently adjusted brake pads are rubbing. Extra effort = more Ginger O’s??? Discovering Metro’s recently […]
Day 16: Sun. Oct. 16th Today we kept things local by undriving the 5 blocks down to our local park. Beija, not to be outdone by her fashionisto father, donned a vast array of sweaters (2!) and stripes.
Day 15: Sat. Oct. 15th Today we reprised last October’s bus trip to my sister’s house in Lynnwood. And whoa, cue weird music, turns out we did it on day 15 of both car-fasts! http://30dayscarfree.posterous.com/day-15-lynnwood-or-bust Just a few variances in this year’s 28 mile round trip. Topping the list would be Beija’s method of transport. Bye […]
Day 8: Sat. Oct. 8th Undrive-a-thon or no, we always do a lot of walking, biking and busing back and forth between our house and the surrounding neighborhoods of Ballard, Fremont, Phinney and Greenwood. So what we really love about our car-fast is that it pushes us to explore destinations that in other months would […]
Today, nothing happened. Okay, a lot happened, but the moment we were waiting for came around 6:03pm when Mike returned home after a week long trip to California. After disembarking from Metro, Beija promptly greeted her dad with a warm hello and then insisted on portering his luggage up the hill. That’s our little helper!
I stopped by the Ballard Market on my bike commute home this afternoon and took a quick pic of the cool ride I parked next to. As luck would have it, I ended up meeting the owner on the way out. The owner, Ben, turned out to be an affable New Yorker now living in […]
Day 5: Wed. Oct. 5th Always good to start the day off with a hearty breakfast before biking to meetings. The only delta between Beija’s breakfast and mine? One less egg. You go little go girl! Day 4: Tues. Oct. 4th Took a short break from Undrive-a-thon logistics to stroll around the neighborhood with […]
