National Bike Week

May 13, 2011

May is National Bike Month and next week is National Bike Week.  Charlottesville has a full week of activities planned many of which are focused around the University.  If you are interested please check out the full list of events at Bike Charlottesville’s website.

I will draw your attention to two events.  The Bike Commuting 101 Lunch hosted by UVA Parking and Transportation on Thursday, May 19th (sign up required, and the Cville Tour de Coop on Saturday, May 21st  (flyer here:  I am an organizer of the chicken coop tour; it is going to be a great time!

Also, Friday the 20th is National Bike to Work Day.  It would be great if members of the staff used this day to start riding bikes to work!

Did you know that the UVA Library supports bicyclists with secure bicycle storage located in the basement of Alderman?

Please feel free to contact me for more information on anything above.

    Just to latch on to Chris’ message—I wanted to remind folks that the Library worked with Green Gounds to provide bike pumps for checkout in both Clemons and Fine Arts. So, if you have a flat… we can help! Just ask at the circulation desk! The bike pumps circulate as “equipment”.
