The Sustainability Office celebrated our cyclists with another successful U Bike Week this September. Seven events hosted by campus departments encouraged people to ride together. Promotions included coffee shop discounts and social media contests – there was something for every cyclist!
Highlights of the week:
- Volunteers counted over 1,400 bicycles parked at racks or secure rooms, an increase of 25% since last year
- Over 200 cyclists joined us for breakfast at the Campus Store to enjoy food from local vendors, network with other cyclists, win prizes, and get a free u-lock for registering their bikes
- A new collaboration with Bike Utah brought certificated instructors on campus to teach a Smart Cycling Course. Held once a semester, this class is free to anyone with a UNID and provides a great opportunity to learn how to safely and confidently ride on roadways
Thanks to all for attending our events, and thanks to the organizations that supported Bike Week activities. A special thank you to the students, employees, and volunteers that make our events possible.
We hope you continue to ride through the winter months, and we will see you again in February for Winter Bike Day. Stay safe and happy cycling!
