Swapping your gas-guzzling, emissions-belching automobile for a clean, lean biking machine is one of the most significant ways you can reduce your negative impact on the planet….So, lube up your chains and grease those bearings- it’s time to kick off Earth Week with the first annual CSU Bike Parade!
Arrive at the north end of the CSU Oval on Monday, April 19th at 3:00pm to ride through campus on your favorite form of alternative transportation.
Be sure to throw on your most fabulous costume to show your support for The Green University. The parade will begin at 3:10pm on the Oval and end at 3:50pm at Newton’s Corner (the sculpture at Pitkin and Center). Students, faculty and staff are invited and helmets are required.
Also, be sure to show your support for the Bike Co-op’s Safe Cycling Program which will be on hand earlier in the day, mentoring students on how to do an ABC Quick Check on their bikes with hands-on tube changes and demos on how to do quick barrel adjustments on their brakes and derailleurs!
If you’d be willing to show off your skills as a tube or tire changer, email Rick Price: firstname.lastname@example.org
