Virginia Tech Alternative Transportation hosts Bike to Campus Day on March 28

In celebration of Bike to Campus Day 2019, all members of the Virginia Tech community are encouraged to ride their bikes to campus on March 28.

Hosted by the Virginia Tech Alternative Transportation Department, Bike to Campus Day celebrates commuters who choose to bike and strives to raise awareness around the many alternative transportation options available at Virginia Tech.

The event will also spotlight the Hokie Bike Hub, the bicycle maintenance and commuter education center located in the Perry Street Garage. At Hokie Bike Hub, all cyclists on campus have access to free tools and resources for self-service bike repair. Cyclists can also attend bike-themed workshops and learn how to maintain and repair bikes through one-on-one sessions with Alternative Transportation staff.

On March 28 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., campus community members are invited to stop by pit stops at the locations below for free refreshments, giveaways, information on alternative transportation, assistance with minor bicycle maintenance, and more:

  • Drillfield

  • McBryde Hall

  • Duck Pond Gazebo

Hokie Bike Hub will also be open during its regular hours on March 28 from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.

From health benefits, to cost savings, and getting around campus and town quickly, the reasons to bike are countless.
