Yesterday the annual strive not to drive week festivities, promoted by the active Asheville on bikes group, carried on with a competition between three hand picked contestants. A driver, a biker and a pedestrian all ran the same errands to see what the quickest way to get around downtown asheville and run errands really is. Mountain Xpress reporter emeritus, Jake Frankel, covered the event in a story board of tweets. The tweets came from observers responsible for refereeing the three contestants and keeping them honest.
