Brigham Young University faculty and students are encouraged to participate in the 2009 UTA “Bike to Work Day” Tuesday, May 12, from 7:30 to 9 a.m. on the west side of the County Courthouse in downtown Provo.
The three-mile bike ride with Mayor Lewis Billings will begin at 8 a.m. The event, celebrating National Bike Month, will include free food and drinks, bike gear and complimentary bike tune-ups.
“I try to ride my bike to work a couple of times a week, especially when the weather is nice,” said Ken Plowman, BYU associate professor of communications. “I ride for exercise, parking availability, enjoyment and economy of gas. By riding to work, I kill two birds with one stone — getting to work and getting exercise.”
