Bike / Walk to Work a Success!

By Beth Potier, Media Relations
May 21, 2008

Cyclists, walkers and other commuters enjoy breakfast at the Durham/UNH Bike/Walk to Work Day celebration Friday, May 16.

Nearly 70 Durham and UNH commuters left their cars at home Friday (May 16), national Bike/Walk to Work Day, and instead fueled up with free bagels and coffee courtesy of Durham: It’s Where U Live and Seacoast Area Bicycle Routes. Among those who took advantage of the beautiful morning to bike, walk, ride a kick-scooter (one woman did, all the way from Newmarket!), or take the bus were many UNH faculty, students and staff; Provost Bruce Mallory; employees from Goss International and other Durham businesses; Oyster River middle and high school teachers and students; and several future cyclists who made their way to preschool via trailers, child seats, and trail-a-bikes behind their parents. Even the wildcat sculpture donned a helmet for the day!

Two of the youngest participants in Bike/Walk to Work Day play with the 'cat on their way to Growing Places preschool at the Woodside Apartments. Per Berglund, associate professor of physics, has a seat on his bike for daughter Addie (left); assistant professor of kinesiology Brent Bell pulls son Holden (right) in a trailer.
