BYU to join in "Bike to Work Day" May 12

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.”

For more information, visit rideuta.com, or call UTA at (801) 227-8958.
