RU is gearing up to participate in and win this year’s 25th annual Bike Commuter Challenge, hosted by the Active Transportation Alliance! Please join the group ‘Roosevelt U. Bikes’ to help us accrue mileage! Anyone who will be riding even a single bike commute trip during the week of the challenge is encouraged to participate. Whether you’ve been bike commuting for years, or are a complete novice, you can join the ‘Roosevelt U. Bikes’ team. A trip can even include biking to/from the bus, train, or alternative transportation that is taking you to/from RU.
Why? Biking is a great way to stay healthy, and reduce your carbon footprint. Plus, it feels great! For those of you who’ve thought about bike commuting, this is the right time to start. Active Transportation Alliance has arranged morning pit stops throughout the city to help you on your way. They’ve also compiled some awesome resources on their website, including safety tips, commuter basics, route planning help, and MORE. Plus, you’ll have lots of support from numerous other riders and events throughout the week!
