In January 2011, Arlington County, Virginia started the search for its biggest Car-Free Diet Skeptics – people who drove their cars a lot, but who were willing to give car-free living a shot. Potential “Skeptics” submitted application videos online, and then the public voted for the five finalists.
Voters chose Matt and Kyle to take on the Car-Free Diet Skeptics Challenge. So on April 21, they hung up their car keys and attempted to live car free for an entire month!
This site chronicles both Skeptics’ 30-day, car-free adventures. Did they stick with their diets the whole time? Or sneak back behind the wheel and cheat? Read their blogs to find out!
The Car-Free Diet Skeptics Challenge is sponsored by Arlington County Commuter Services, which promotes many alternatives to driving alone that are available to residents and businesses in Arlington County, Virginia.
