Pedal Power Made Easy at UNH and Not Just During National Bike Month

April 30, 2008

Anyone who’s into biking knows May is National Bike Month. Suggesting they forgo the car for a week or even a month as Media Relations’ own Beth Potier (see related story Footloose and Car-free) has pledged to do is, as they say, preaching to the choir.

Because it’s a good bet that many of them—Beth included—already bike to work on a regular basis. Marj Foote of Editorial and Creative Services routinely makes the trip from Kittery.

So this is aimed at the rest of us.

Those of us who don’t live close enough to ride. Or who fear they wouldn’t make it to work alive if they did.

Yes, folks, we can still do our part to participate in National Bike Month or National Bike-to-Work week (May 12-16) by taking advantage of Transportation Service’s Cat Cycles.

A commuter bike program, Cat Cycles can be used by any member of the university community for up to one week. Employees arrive on campus in their regular manner and then pick up a bike at the Visitor Information Center at the entrance of A-lot. Second best part (besides the energy savings)? It’s free.

All you have to do is fill out a form at the information center. You’ll get a bike—and a lock—to use for the day or the week. You can ride anywhere you want, on or off campus. When you’re done, simply return it or, if want and there are bikes available, sign it out for another week.
