Recap: Bike to Campus Week 2021

The third annual Bike to Campus Week was a success!

Hosting over twenty unique engagement opportunities, students, staff, and faculty were able to learn and take part in the many joys of bicycling during this year’s event. The week-long celebration began by concentrating on bike basics, culminating with the unplugged, in-person bike fair in Schenley Plaza.

The virtual sessions reached over 1200 views collectively and are available to watch here. We had guest speakers from a wide range of perspectives and from both CMU and Pitt. There was also The bike fair hosted around 10 vendors that engaged over 200 students in areas of advocacy, education, and community. The Pitt Bike Cave also hosted a culminating ride in conjunction with the student lead group, LAGOS, and biked all the way to the Point. 

One of the most notable things that happened this year was having the Pitt Chancellor, CMU Provost and President involved. They each biked to campus and took pictures to prove it!
