F&S Announcement about Bike Day events!

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on September 8, 2021

Celebrate CU Bike Day 2021
Be a part of two great upcoming bicycle events on Tuesday, September 14. You can participate, volunteer, or do both! 

The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign achieved the Silver-level Bicycle Friendly University status in October 2019 because of its ongoing commitment to improving bicycle education, infrastructure, and programs. Visit the Bike at Illinois website to learn more about the many efforts that support bicycling on campus.
Bike to Work Day
Champaign County Bike to Work Day returns this semester. There will be 17 welcoming stations open between 7 and 10 a.m., with nine on the Urbana campus. Grab a snack and get some free Bike at Illinois merchandise and a T-shirt! To get the free T-shirt, you must register and bring your bicycle! 
Light the Night
The 14th annual Light the Night, a free bike light giveaway, will be held that evening from 4 to 7 p.m. at three locations:

  • Alma Mater Plaza
  • Hallene Gateway (intersection of Illinois Street and Lincoln Avenue)
  • Campus Bike Center (51. E. Gregory Drive) 

Participants must bring their bicycles to receive the free light sets; lights will only be installed on bicycles without lights. Volunteers are needed in the afternoon and evening for three shifts. Fill out the volunteer sign-up form to assist. All volunteers will be required to wear face coverings during the event.
