Bike to Work Campaign

Bike to Work Month, a campaign organized by the Cascade Bicycle Club, one of the biggest bike commuter events on the west coast.  It is an event encouraging employees in the Puget Sound region to ride their bikes to work in support of alternate commuting means. 

We already have one team of faculty and staff from SPU participating in the  campaign (the 'SPU Spinning Past U') who are eager to have more people from SPU help them compete against other schools, like the UW.  Check out their progress

at http://www.cascade.org. 

Bike to Work Day, Cascade Bicycle Education Foundation is proud to bring you the annual Starbucks Bike to Work Day, Friday May 19. Thirty-seven commuter stations will be located through out Puget Sound for bike riders to stop and pick up free water bottles, snacks, maps, bicycle commuting information or to have bike checked for free. For more information and the complete list of bike-to-work stations, visit the link to the left.
