Bike Buddies program

(June 17, 2014) Interested in learning how to bike to work? Let the Transportation Center pair you up with a bike buddy! A bike buddy is an experienced cyclist from the DU community who lives near you and wants to help you learn to get around on a bike. We know that figuring out how to travel by bike brings up a lot of questions: Which roads do I take? What do I wear? What are the rules of the road? How do I carry everything I need for the day? A bike buddy can show you the way and help provide the answers to these questions. Contact Katie Bonomo at du@transolutions.org if you're interested in being paired with a mentor. We're also recruiting mentors! If you're an experienced cyclist and want to share your love of biking to work, contact Katie at du@transolutions.org.
