PLNU Commuters Ditch Cars for Bikes

Date: 
Friday, February 25, 2011

 

In 2010, alternative travelers biked more than 2,000 miles to and from campus, and the number of bikers and miles are quickly growing.

This Friday is another Bike the (Traffic) Jam, a sustainability department-hosted, monthly bike-to-campus day. Commuters are encouraged to make their way to campus by bicycle rather than car. 

Riders are greeted with refreshments when they reach PLNU, and prizes are given by raffle and to the commuter traveling the furthest. Bike the Jam was inspired by San Diego’s Bike to Work Day, which is held each May. Because of positive feedback, PLNU made biking to work a monthly event.

Inspired? Dust off your bike (or walking shoes) and visit www.pointloma.edu/Sustainability.
