Bike to Work May 15: Refuel in the courtyard
In support of Snohomish County Community Transit’s Bike to Work Day, Edmonds Community College will host its first celebration station to encourage students, faculty, staff, and the local business community to stay fit and think green.
The station will provide water and healthy snacks to bike commuters 7:30-11:30 a.m., Fri., May 15 in the courtyard between Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace Halls.
The college is also creating jerseys for cyclists and will debut the design of the shirts at the station. Both the Bike to Work station and the bicycle jerseys are class projects of students studying business management at the college.
The Bike to Work Day station is part of a number of events focused on sustainability in April and May at Edmonds CC. See all the Earth events at www.edcc.edu/sustain. For more information, call 425.640.1581.
