Last year (2014) there was one RU participant in the Bike2Campus competition, but this year there were five participants from Roosevelt. Roosevelt is one University among twelve in the Chicagoland area that participate in Bike2Campus Week. Held during Earth Week in April, the concept of Bike2Campus week is to promote sustainable transportation in the Chicago urban environment. Part competition and part challenge, Bike2Campus includes riding, recording, and winning rewards—better yet, it is not solely limited to riding one’s bike to campus; rather, students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to record any bike trips they take that whole week.

Mike Bryson: 3rd place winner with 6 trips!

This year, Roosevelt’s winners were as follows: Diana Zak (Assistant Chair of Psychology at RU); Steven Monserud (Director of Accounting/Reporting at RU); Mike Bryson (Professor of Humanities and Director of Sustainability Studies at RU); Susan Weiner (Professor of Biology at RU); and Wilfredo Urbina Romero (Professor of Mathematics at RU). Each participant got to choose their prizes which were received from week-long sponsors including, but not limited to the following: DIVVY, Chipotle, Planet Bike, Kyroptonite, and many more.

Please give congratulations to these individuals if you happen to see them at all, and for more information on Bike2Campus week, visit http://www.bike2campus.com/
