Bike Month Challenge

Bike Jam

Every September at UCCS we celebrate our favorite form of alternative and sustainable transportation - the bicycle! There are three opportunities for you to win great prizes: Bike Jam, Bike Rider's Breakfast, and Bike Month Challenge! For the month of September, we challenge students, faculty, and staff of UCCS to forego their cars and trucks and instead bike to campus, do leisure riding on the city trails, workout on the stationary bike at the Rec Center, or pedal to do your errands! We support any kind of bicycle riding. Register for Bike Month Challenge by going to BikeJournal.com (join the club called "UCCS 2013 Bike Month Challenge") or calling our office at (719) 255-3089 to sign up as a team. Winners will be contacted by the information provided on their Bike Journal profile after October 6th. The department or office team with the most collective miles can win the Traveling Trophy for One Year, free pints of Ben and Jerry's, and a year's supply of Green Mountain Organic Coffee. As Bike Month Challenge comes to an end, the Office of Sustainability will hold a celebration called Bike for Bagels. Anyone can receive a bagel, whether you have signed up for Bike Month Challenge or not, as long as you arrive at the table on your bike! Stop by Tuesday, October 1st from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM in front of Columbine for your free breakfast!
