MIT's Office of Parking and Transportation will hold a bike awareness event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13, outside the Stratton Student Center. Join in and learn how to commute to work safely by bike. Register your bike during the event and get a free T-shirt with your bike permit.
Check out the brand new bike repair station outside the student center, where cyclists can make quick repairs to their equipment. Refreshments and a bike tour around campus will also be available. Vendors scheduled to attend include: Cambridge Bike Shop, Pietzo, Charles River TMA, Parking and Transportation Office, MIT Police, EHS Office, DAPER and the WG Transportation Committee.
This event is being held in conjunction with Bay State Bike Week 2009 and the MassCommuter Challenge, which is encouraging people to cycle to work or school at least once during the week of May 11-17. Better yet, sign up to commute by bike all week. Details and registration are available at: http://baystatebikeweek.kintera.org.
