This week marks Georgia Tech’s annual “Think Green Week”, culminating with our Earth Day festivities on Friday, April 20th. Both Starter Bikes and the BIIC have some events planned for the week, so check them out!
– Starter Bikes Repair Station
Thursday and Friday of this week Starter Bikes will have a free bike repair station set up on campus (Th along Tech Walkway, on Friday they’ll be part of Earth Day by the IC lawn).
– GTPD Tabling
GTPD will have a table out on Tech Walkway Monday-Thursday from 10am to 2pm so they can answer your questions about bicycle safety and security, and provide free bike registration (which helps you get your bike back if its lost or stolen!). They’ve all recently taken an involved course on bike safety and current laws, so take advantage of their expertise!
– Spring Bike Counts
On Thursday, April 19th, BIIC will be engaging in the second bike count of the year, canvassing bike racks around campus to count the number of bikes on campus (we do this each year to get a sense for how many people use bikes on/around campus). If you’d like to join in on the counts as a volunteer, your efforts will not go unappreciated! (meeting at 1pm between the CULC and Skiles).
– Think Green Bike Tour
Also on Thursday, from 12-1pm, a group of students will be leading a tour of Georgia Tech’s major sustainability efforts around campus (departs from the CULC).
