In an effort to reduce the amount of automobiles on campus, improve air quality and promote a healthy lifestyle, the University of Utah’s Commuter Services Office kicked off “Bike to the U Day” at the on-campus Farmers Market on Sept. 5.
If you rode your bike to campus, you received free bananas, bagels and cream cheese, and a flavorsome beverage. Moreover, a bicycle valet for students, faculty and staff was available.
As an added bonus, the first 100 cyclists took advantage of the University of Utah’s Department of Public Safety “Lock It or Lose It” promotion, which allowed students to register their bikes and receive a free Kryptonite bike lock valued at $50.
The Bike to the U Campaign and the Bicycle Valet will take place at every Farmers Market event this fall. Additionally, the bike valet will be available at every home football game located near the “Fountain of Ute” in the west parking lot of Rice-Eccles Stadium.
