National Dump the Pump Day is Thursday.

The City of Savannah held its annual "Dump the Pump Challenge" Thursday morning. Participants riding a car, a bike and a bus competed for the title of fastest commute downtown.

The annual event promotes alternate forms of commuting that are cheaper and cleaner for the environment. This year's winner was the bike rider.

I think it's a pretty good way to show the people of Savannah, this is a pretty bike-friendly city as is. It's a beautiful place to ride, an easy place to ride, and it's a lot faster than a car a lot of the time, especially for shorter trips around town,” said Jen Colestock, winner.

It was actually her fourth year in a row winning the challenge!
