Bike to Work Day: Save on gas, get active

May 7, 2012

In celebration of National Bike Month, the campus community is invited to participate in Greater Lafayette’s Bike to Work Day on May 18. Ride your bike to work, save some gas and enjoy some physical activity.

On the day of the ride, a rally for participants will be held at 7:30 a.m. at Main and 11th streets. The mayors of Lafayette and West Lafayette will address attendees, and refreshments will be served.

WorkLife Programs has gathered some informational links about biking on campus to help you be ready to participate.
