A cyclist pedals along the shoulder of Highway 20 between Corvallis and Albany. The annual Get There alternative transportation campaign begins Monday. Participants can earn prizes by logging trips in which they don't drive solo.

The annual Get There alternative transportation campaign runs Monday through May 22.

Participants can track trips made by bike, bus, walking, carpool/vanpool and teleworking at DriveLessConnect.com for a chance to win prizes such as a Kindle Fire, a getaway to Chinook Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln City, restaurant gift cards, a gym membership, farmers market tokens, and more.

To track trips and be eligible for prizes, individuals must create a profile at DriveLessConnect.com by clicking “Register Now" (or sign-in if already a member). Click “Ridematch” in the top grey bar to create a trip, and “Calendar” to track trips.

The Get There campaign, which began in 1990, features events such as  breakfast for bike commuters hosted by the city of Corvallis, bike repair classes in Corvallis, outreach at Linn-Benton Community College in Albany, free lights for transit users in Lincoln and Linn counties, and an informational meeting for employers in South Lincoln County.

For information about Corvallis events, go to this website: http://www.corvallisoregon.gov/index.aspx?page=1102

The event is sponsored by the city of Corvallis and the Cascades West Council of Governments.
