The Office of Sustainability and Tufts Institute of the Environment (TIE) welcome students back from spring break with an event to encourage everyone to get on a bike this spring. Whether you are looking for a bike or need help getting your bike ready for spring, join us on March 27 (Wednesday) at the Upper Patio of the Campus Center from 12-2pm!
* Tufts Bikes mechanics will be there to do free tuneups and answer questions about our free campus bike share program.
* Bike Boom, a used bike store based in Davis Square, will bring samples from their large collection of restored bikes.
* Tufts University Police Department (TUPD) will be registering bikes, selling bike locks, and talking about bike safety.
* FBike will have its cool folding bikes on site for people to try.
* Bikes Not Bombs will be signing people up for their annual Bike-a-Thon and talking about volunteer opportunities and their programs for bike advocacy.
* MassRides will be there to sign people up for the NuRides rewards program for green commuting and the MassCommute Bike Challenge where Tufts competes with other institutions to log the most miles on a bike during Bay State Bike Week in May.
The Office of Sustainability will also be there to distribute a brand new Bike Map for the Medford campus created especially for cyclists, with details like where to find bike racks and how to avoid the steep hills on campus.
If you pass by Anderson Hall during the week, be sure to try out TIE’s bicycle-powered generator. You can get your exercise and charge your cell phone at the same time!
Hope to see you at the Upper Campus Center Patio during from 12-2pm on Wednesday, March 27. Download Bike Week poster here.
