Bike to Mason Day on Earth Day

If you've ever ridden a bike on the GMU campus you will have noticed that unlike almost other campuses in the U.S., very few people ride bikes. Most people drive and park in one of the many parking lots spread throughout the campus. Many of those people, including faculty, staff, and students, are within easy riding distance of campus and could bike commute.

GMU transportation staff want to promote bicycling to the campus this year. Since the regional Bike to Work Day event is held when George Mason University students are on break, on May 16, 2008, GMU staff wanted to hold their event on another day. Tomorrow is Earth Day, an appropriate date for the first annual Bike to Mason Day, held in conjunction with other Earth Day activities. FABB has been working with a small committee to plan the event and we will be there handing out literature and signing up cyclists for our e-newsletter.

As of late last week, over 225 people have singed up to participate. Read about some of the incentives being used to sign up cyclists in this Fairfax Times article about the event.
