2017 MSU Bike Month Events

Banner for Natl Bike Month

May is National Bike Month and there are a number of events happening on or near campus to celebrate & encourage bicycling, improve bike safety, spread bike friendliness around MSU and have some fun along the way.

CONCLUDED – Stay tuned for a brief report.

(Archived Description:
Now that the weather has turned nice, have you ever thought to yourself, “It’s such a nice day! It would be the perfect day to bike or walk to work!” If that thought ever crossed your mind, no matter how fleeting, this event is for you!   Join us for a funny and informative brown-bag session from several “regular people” who walk or bike to work on campus.)

    10th Annual Greater Lansing/ MSU/ E. Lansing Ride of Silence

    When: May 17, 5:30 pm ~9 pm
    Where:  Wells Hall Courtyard (near Starbucks)

    MSU Bikes once again will host the Ride of Silence on the campus for the Greater Lansing area.  Approx. 200 people joined in this very significant event the last couple years that honors/ remembers bicyclists who’ve been seriously injured or killed in crashes with motor vehicles.  The evening wraps up with an after-party at the Lansing Brewing Co. to celebrate all the hard work area advocates are doing to improve things in the area to make it safer for cycling.  The TCBA Advocacy Committee is one such group that has monthly meetings open to the public and needs more people concerned about improving our roads.  The Facebook event page for the ride has full details and links to photos from last year for your viewing pleasure.  There is also a Facebook page for the Greater Lansing Ride of Silence that you might want to plug into to stay abreast.
