Strive Not to Drive
Strive Week, May 12-19, 2017, asks those who travel within Buncombe, Haywood, and Henderson counties to move in the healthiest, happiest, most sustainable ways possible. Whether commuting, running errands, or just out enjoying your cities, when you leave your car behind, you open the journey up to more connections. So please, join the Commute Challenge, attend your local events, and consider going by bike, foot, carpool, or transit.
