Any biking trip counts whether you ride a few blocks to the Metra or all the way to work or to run a couple errands.  In celebration of Bike-to-Work Week, NU hosts Bike Commuter Stations on the Chicago and Evanston campus. Bicyclists will be able to purchase Kryptonite locks “at cost” from University Police and bike mechanics will offer free safety checks, lube, and air. Refreshments will be provided. Learn more on the University Services–Bicycle webpage this June.
The Commuter Challenge offers tips and tools to make it easy to bike to work/school. Please join the Northwestern team!
