7th annual Dump the Pump Challenge runs through Savannah

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The results are in from the seventh annual Dump the Pump Challenge in Savannah.

The race on Thursday morning pitted a bicycle against a car and a bus in a trek from 12 Oaks Shopping Center off of Abercorn Street to City Hall, and the winner was the cyclist.

Obeying all the laws and riding carefully, she made it in about 20 minutes despite a detour due to traffic.

The passenger on the bus finished second and the driver finished in last place.

"I don't mind a few extra endorphins," said biker Jen Colestock. "It makes you feel great. It's better than a cup of coffee in the morning."

Organizers said they're not trying to get people to ditch their cars completely, just to consider other options.
