Oregon’s first statewide Drive Less Challenge kicks off Oct. 21 and runs (and bikes and walks and carpools) through Nov. 1. The aim is to reduce vehicle miles traveled by 500,000 miles. Sign up at DriveLessChallenge.com/challenge to participate, and you can get an informational kit; you can even request a couple of freebies like leg straps for biking and pedometers.
