Celebrate Cycling During “Bike to Work & School” Week
For the 7th year in a row Bike to Work & School Week will encourage people in Logan to ride their bikes to work and school. During the week of May 11 – 16, 2015, cyclists will be offered snacks, prizes, and information about cycling from 7:30 – 9:30 AM at the CTVD Transit Center and on 700 E in front of Aggie Blue Bikes on the USU campus. Volunteers, in conjunction with Cache County Bike & Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC), USU Sustainability, and Aggie Blue Bikes, will staff the prize tables and offer lightbicycle tune-ups at the two locations in Logan.
In addition to the tables at CTVD Transit Center and Aggie Blue Bikes each morning, other events will be celebrating and encouraging riding. On Tuesday, May 12 (10:00 a.m., Logan Transit Center), the bike riders are encouraged to come ride with Logan Mayor Craig Peterson and to take advantage of some of the new infrastructure improvements that make cycling in Logan more safe and fun. This event gives cyclists a chance to ask questions, raise issues, and discuss improvements and needs with Logan City officials.
The events and festivities of Bike to Work & School Week occur just following the May 1 kickoff of the “The National Bike Challenge,” an annual nationwide biking contest that promotes biking for fun and transport. The contest aims to unite over 75,000 bicyclists who are encouraged to ride collectively 35 million miles between May 1 and September 30. Bike to Work Week encourages riders to start riding their bikes to work and to join the National Bike Challenge to continue riding for the entire summer.
Bike to Work Week is a national event, organized by The League of American Bicyclists, a group of citizens who love to bike and think more people biking would be a benefit to the city by helping to increase fitness and fun.
