Richland, WA (PRWEB) February 9, 2004 -- Gas prices now force consumers and commuters to consider alternatives to fuel burning vehicles, especially for short commute trips. TrailSkate offers a new form of personal transportation that is both fun and healthy.

One small step to reduce global warming, every time you TrailSkate instead of driving, you eliminate CO2 emissions, reduce your dependency on foreign oil, and save money at the gas pumps.

Manufactured by Gateskate, Inc. in Richland, Washington; TrailSkate was awarded “New Sports Product of the Year ’02” by the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association. www.gateskate.com

Used by Olympic athletes and Nordic skiers for training; hundreds of other recreational athletes use TrailSkate for the sheer joy of off-road skating.

Equipped with 8 X 2 inch air tires, hand operated hydraulic brakes, and a boot that fits over the user’s own shoes, TrailSkate provides skaters of all ages and ability a viable, fun, and healthy form of personal transportation, suitable for any bike path or trail.

TrailSkate inventor and founder of Gateskate, Inc., Patrick Gates is looking for a few good skaters. In a new Gateskate initiative to promote skating as a viable form of personal transportation, the company is offering a “Commuter Special” to customers who assist Gateskate in spreading the word.

The average Park-and-Ride commuter travels 2 miles to transit access.
40 percent of all travel trips are 2 miles or less.
53 percent of all people nationwide live less than two miles from the nearest public transportation route.
74.1 percent of all commute trips were made by Single Occupant Vehicles (SOV’s).

TrailSkate commutes replace short distance motor-vehicle trips, which are the least fuel-efficient and generate the most pollution per mile traveled.

Moreover, three activities can be accomplished at once: travel, exercise and FUN.

Corporations interested in co-promotion opportunities and Commute Trip Reduction programs concerning Single Occupant Vehicles are encouraged to contact Gateskate about Clean Air Act initiatives and Federal tax incentives.

For persons interested in a fun and healthy form of personal transportation that saves you gas money and helps the environment, call Gateskate, Inc. at our toll free number 800 936 5330, visit our website www.gateskate.com, or email about our “Commuter Special” at e-mail protected from spam bots.
