Strive Not to Drive campaign aims to promote sustainable transportation | Mountain Xpress | Asheville, NC

Today, May 12, marks the beginning of the annual Strive Not to Drive campaign, which features a series of local events designed to promote active and sustainable transportation.

A highlight is the May 13 Leadership Community Bike Ride. Hosted by city and county officials, riders will take to the streets across Asheville to learn about recent successes and ongoing challenges with developing multimodal transportation infrastructure. Members of the public wishing to join the ride should gather with bikes and helmets in tow at 5:15 in front of City Hall.

On May 15, Lauren Tamayo, who earned a silver medal in track cycling at the 2012 London Olympics, will greet students as they arrive in two “bicycle trains” at Hominy Valley Elementary School. The school is one of six schools across Asheville and Buncombe County that are hosting walk- and bike-to-school eventsthroughout the week. The Buncombe County School system is promoting the events as opportunities for students and parents to get out of their cars and hit the pavement in an effort to support healthier kids and communities.
