Bike to Mason Day 2010It was a beautiful but cold Bike to Mason Day yesterday. We talked to many students, faculty, and staff about our work, to hand out county bike maps, and to tell them about our newsletter.
Josh Cantor of the GMU Transportation Department has done a great job of holding this event for the past several years. Due to conflicts with the academic calendar it's held earlier than the regional Bike to Work Day events. Josh is working with Commuter Check to provide vouchers for bike commuters who are Mason employees as part of the GMU Commuter Choice program.
We also had a chance to check out the GMU Bike Village. Christi gave us a tour of their space, located in the ground floor of one of the parking garages. Soon they hope to have donated bikes ready for their bike share/rental program.
