Bike to Work Week starts Monday

Bike to Work Week starts Monday

You can still sign up for Bike to Work Week. All cyclists and approaches to riding are welcome. Participate in whatever way works for you, whether it’s driving partway to campus and cycling the rest, putting your bike on the bus for part of your commute, or treating the whole ride like a power sprint.

There will be prizes awarded throughout the week. But you cannot win if you do not (sign up and) play.

Register by emailing and making sure ‘sign me up!’ is in the subject line. Then, each day you ride that week, enter your daily mileage on the online distance tracker so we can track our combined efforts. Last year 30 of us cycled a combined distance of 1644 kilometers, with riders peddling anything from two to 34 kilometers a day.

BTWW activities on and around campus:
