For the first time the MSU community was challenged and encouraged to try commuting back and forth to campus by “green” modes of transportation, that being anything but driving a motor vehicle by oneself (aka ‘Single occupancy vehicle’ or SOV). 31 Spartans joined the MSU Fall Commuter Challenge of 2017, which ran from Sept. 18 thru Dec. 15, 2017, and logged some very impressive numbers as the info-graphics below attest.
The top three Spartans in the bicycling category won some prizes from MSU Bikes for their efforts! The photo below is showing the overall winner, Hannah Terpstra, who logged 205 bike trips. She won a $50 gift certificate to MSU Bikes and a free cycling video analysis from the Olin Student Health Services Physical Therapy Department! The runner up was Joseph Hill, with 130 bike trips (won a $30 gift certificate) followed by Kelly Zarka in 3rd place with 116 bike trips ($20 gift certificate).
If you’d like to join in the fun in learning some new ways of getting back/forth to campus another challenge is running for the month of January 2018. Check it out here on the CATA Clean Commute website or click the image below.
