SF kicks off Gas-Free Fridays

Posted By Dan On June 30, 2010 @ 9:59 am In California Health Report | No Comments

[1]Furlough Fridays may be history, but Gas-Free Fridays have only just begun.

The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is urging city residents and commuters to avoid internal combustion engines on Fridays in July by cycling to work, shop and play. Half of all trips in the city are under two miles, the coalition says, and most of those can be easily done by bike.

The coalition is offering posters to promote Gas-Free Fridays, staffing fuel-up stations with volunteers and encouraging workers to organize their friends and colleagues into commuter convoys.
