The Top of Michigan Trails Council (TOMTC) encourages you to get fit, be green and save money at Emmet County’s 5th Annual Smart Commute event, June 2-6. Smart Commute promotes the use of alternative modes of transportation to get to work or school.
The Smart Commute Commuter Cup Challenge is again the centerpiece event for the week. It is a friendly competition between local businesses and organizations. They compete to see who can encourage the highest percentage of employees to walk, bicycle or carpool to get to work. Team Captains Register for the Commuter Cup Challenge (Mail-in or Scan and email).
Free breakfasts abound for Smart Commuters from local eateries, Monday through Thursday. The week ends with the Awards Ceremony on Friday, June 6th at the Gazebo in Pennsylvania Park, downtown Petoskey, noon-1pm, where team and individual awards are distributed. Thanks to Latitude 45 Bicycles and Fitness, there will be a drawing for a bike again this year!
Petoskey, on Little Traverse Bay, is about 60 miles north of Traverse City on US-31.
