Mark your calendars for Friday, May 15, 8 am – 9:30 am, National Bicycle to Work Day, for our 3rd Annual Bike to Work – Campus Breakfast to honor and recognize those who bicycle to work/ campus and celebrate bicycling as an important part of MSU’s Bike Month activities. Join us for a free breakfast in the large private dining room of the Brody Square Cafeteria. Just give your name and the event name at the register.
Enjoy free bicycle valet parking provided by Mid-Michigan Environmental Action Council just outside the main entrance to Brody Hall.
There is a limit of 56 people for the room so please RSVP using this form. There is a short survey on the RSVP form which we hope will allow us to have some interesting data to share during the breakfast regarding our attendees and their bike commuting.
We’re lining up speakers now and looking for volunteers to sit on a panel discussion. There will again be raffle prizes.
News: We’ve confirmed one of our speakers, Dr. Greg Holzman, who’s heading up the Healthy Campus Initiative, which is a program of the Provost. HCI is assisting with pulling together all stakeholders on campus to develop some effective ways to improve the safety of bicyclists and pedestrians on the MSU Campus. We’ll get an update on that initiative.
Download the PDF version of the poster for printing and hanging in your work place to help promote the events.
It’s the official kickoff to the bicycling season. If you’re looking for materials to help promote bicycling in your work place the League of American Bicyclists have got a bunch of stuff here.
National Bike Challenge Starts May 1!
Calling all MSU bicyclists! It’s time to start warming up for the National Bike Challenge again. If you’ve never participated in the past, it’s very easy to join the fun. You’ll be eligible for great prizes and get to see how your miles compare to others at MSU and around the country! Be sure you’re registered under MSU as your school and then our miles will all be counted together! (We don’t have a Team MSU per se as there are limits on how big a team can be and other logistical headaches) Here’s MSU’s summary/ profile: https://nationalbikechallenge.org/school/6394
