Change the World...
Trek is running a campaign title “1 World 2 Wheels” to help encourage people around the world to ween themselves from their addiction to convenience, which will lessen their carbon footprint at the same time. Shoot, I think that’s bordering on a run-on sentence.

Earlier this year, I tried to calculate my carbon footprint and how much gas I’ll save by cyclocommuting (my goal is 2400 miles this year or 200 per month). I did the math and realized I’d probably spend the savings on additions to my bike, biking clothing, etc. and began to despair. I wasn’t really sure how to calculate my footprint… Wow, that’s the worst paragraph I’ve ever written.

Worry not, young grammarians of North Balto, Trek makes it easy!

Check it our here…

The site has a really fun to use flash-based calculator that helps you figure out how much you could ride per month commuting, getting groceries, etc. When you’re done, you can enter to win a Trek FX bike and get html code to put a widget on your site promoting the whole cause.

Whether you’re a fan of Trek or not, this is a cause that’s easy to support.
