School is back in session and we can tell that there are a lot more bikes out there. The bike rental program is sold out with a waiting list. (We now have over 50 bikes in the fleet and two departmental programs.) The u-lock giveaways went flying out the door and we have sold more lights in the last week than we sold all last semester.
We are changing to a CatEye LED headlight and tail light set starting next week. Still $20 like the old light set. These are identical to the lights we gave away during the Bikes Be Bright event last year.
We should have plenty of the Lazer helmets in stock. It makes good sense to have one and use one.
The Transportation Fair is next week Wednesday. Please join us in Hornbake Plaza for cotton candy, popcorn and prizes! Also, enter to win a new bike. Barbara Ball from REI will be there as usual and we will also have all of the updated information at the bikeUMD table to help you bike on and around campus.
Soon we will be announcing the new dates for the Bicycle Advisory Group (BAG). If you are interested in joining please email the bike coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. or just leave a message on our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/BikeUMD/113115015368119
We are expecting a lot of new changes in the coming year. Stay posted. Announcements will be made on the facebook page but you will always be able to find more details here at the blog.
