How You Can Celebrate National Bike to Work Week

National Bike to Work Week is September 21-27, and to celebrate, the Department of Transportation and Parking Management invites all members of the University community to attend special events that promote cycling as a safe, healthy way to commute.

On September 22, participants can tune in to the classes, “How to Fix a Flat and Other Bike Maintenance Basics” followed by “Safe Cycling” on September 24. Register online in advance.

Then on Friday, September 25 there will be a pit stop hosted jointly by the Rochester Cycling Alliance, Reconnect Rochester and the University at the cycle track on Elmwood Avenue, across from the main hospital entrance. Stop by between 7:30-9:30 a.m. to meet and chat with fellow cyclists and (safely) grab a free cereal bar. Working from home on Friday, September 25? Join in the fun and ride around your neighborhood! Post about your commute with the hashtag #biketoworkdayur on social media!

The University earned a silver “Bicycle Friendly University” award in 2018 and had Rochester’s most used bike share station during Pace’s tenure. This pit stop event is one way of thanking those who cycle to the River and Medical campuses. Contact Tracey Austin with questions.
