I have an exciting upcoming event – as the subject line implies – to announce. Â Tuesday, 4 October, is Bike-to-Campus Day at U of M!! Â Look, we even have a poster!!!
I’m more-or-less the organizer of this thing. Â We had our first bike-to-campus day last year, again in conjunction with Tiger Blue Goes Green Day, and about a dozen people participated. Â I’m hoping for more this time, which is where you, dear reader, come in.
I know that most of you reading this blog don’t work at U of M, so it doesn’t make any sense for you to actually participate. Â But you likely know someone who does work at the University. So please, take a moment and share this post on your facebook, or forward it to a friend. Â Or, better still, send them the link to the official facebook event.
As the poster indicates, we have two group rides that morning. Â One leaves from First Congo at 8:00 AM; I’m leading that one. Â Brian Janz, a colleague of mine, is leading one from near Shelby Farms down the Greenline.
The rides culminate with a group picture on campus. Â I’d really like to have 25+ people there. Â Help me spread the word and we’ll make it happen.
And of course, if you do work at U of M, please join us for this day. Â You don’t have to do a group ride, just be at the fountain at 8:30 AM.
