The Sun's Out and You Should Be, Too

Rosie Bubb - Apr 9, 2018

There’s something about being outside that makes people feel calmer. It could be the air, the sun on your skin — or that feeling of freedom that four walls and a ceiling could never capture.

But the packed schedules of daily life can make it hard to carve out the hours it seems to take to reach the great outdoors.

At Lyft, our mission is to improve people’s lives with the world’s best transportation. REI believes that a life outdoors is a life well-lived. That’s why we’re excited to partner with REI, so we can remind people that the beauty of nature is just a short ride away.

From April 10 through 15, we’re offering $5 off 6 rides to or from outdoor locations within or near the cities below. Think Golden Gate Park, Lake Raleigh, and Chicago Botanic Garden — wide open spaces that are easy to get to.Every ride taken to or from the select locations will give riders the chance to win an exclusive outdoor experience that could only be brought to you by REI. Winners from each city will be treated to either an expertly crafted overnight campout or a Sofar Sounds curated concert under the stars.

Just as the landscape across America is unique, so too is each outdoor experience. Find out what’s happening near you and check the links below.
