PSU is participating in a city-wide campaign to promote cycling in our great city. Sign up and compete individually or as a team with friends, classmates, club members, etc.
It’s not too late to get started. Get more details and sign up at http://biketopsu.com/
If you’re a student or teacher at PSU who is a parent, then your kid’s school is probably having their Walk + Bike challenge as well. If not, it’s not too late to register for that and get those kids started on sustainable and healthy modes of transportation! Volunteer to be a coordinator and feel good about all the families you’ll encourage to get involved. Go to WalkNBike to sign up. I’m the coordinator for the program at my kid’s school and I’ve had lots of fun organizing experienced riders with the ones more nervous about riding the distance. We are a charter school, with students all over the city, so it’s more of a challenge to get people to ride than the neighborhood schools, but it’s worth it. I’m setting up bike trains from all quadrants of the city and I’m making new friends while having fun and promoting sustainability!
