USU PROMOTES NATIONAL BIKE TO WORK WEEK MAY 13-18

LOGAN – National Bike to School and Work Week is May 13-18. Celebrations will occur throughout Cache Valley.

 

An information table will be at the Logan Transit Center from 7:30-9:30 a.m. each weekday providing bike-related prizes for those riding a bike. Free refreshments, riding and safety information, bike registration and free, five-minute bike tune-ups will be provided by Utah State University’s Aggie Blue Bikes Program.

 

Utah State University will also have an information table on the TSC patio from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. with free health screenings, massages, prizes and healthy snacks.

 

The Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Board (BPAC) is sponsoring Bike to School activities at the seven valley high schools. Each school received a promotional package and a $50 check to be utilized by students to advocate biking.

 

Bear River Charter School will have a bike registration table on Monday, May 13, from 7:30 to 8am.

 

Helmet stickers will be available at the various information tables throughout the week.  The stickers will be redeemable for discounts at Logan bike shops, restaurants and other retailers during the week.  

 

Organizers encourage everyone to join the fun, leave the car at home, and get a healthy kick out of it.

 

Sponsors for the week include the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Board, Cache Valley Transit District, USU Sustainability Council, Bear River Health Department, USU-Aggie Blue Bikes, J-U-B Engineers Inc., USU Employee Wellness Program, Caffe Ibis and Cache Metropolitan Planning Organization.
