Bike to Campus Week: April 16-22
ISEC is asking campuses across Illinois to encourage students to bike to campus April18-22. We’d like this to be friendly competition while having a bit of fun and encouraging a new bicyclists on campus.
Bike to Campus Week goals:
1) Take a picture of fellow bike commuters, as a group or individually.
2) Have students sign a commitment sheet with their email and why they ride, so we have a count for each campus. (e-mail Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org for the form)
3) Have a new bike commuter tell their story.
4) Gather signatures, pictures, and newbie stories and send them to ISEC so we can post them on our website as inspiration for other campuses.
Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago currently has 12 bicyclists signed up and committed to commuting to campus the week of April 18-22. Everyone has a different reason of why they ride. They include; “Biking rocks” and “To reduce carbon emissions.” We have a picture of our group and hope to take pictures of individual riders with their bikes during Bike to Campus Week. We also have two potential first-timers who want to try biking to campus: Michelle and Matt. They will give it a shot and tell us their story when the week is up. What’s your campus’ count?
