TRU Go By Bike Week and Commuter Challenge – TRU Newsroom

Biker’s Breakfast– This year, we are serving a free breakfast on Tuesday, May 31 (weather permitting) with a vegan-for-the-planet theme. Going vegan has many environmental and health benefits. While a complete vegan diet may not be appealing to many, this breakfast event is designed to highlight the amazing food that can be made without the use of meat or dairy products. Come on down and try something new! Breakfast will include a tofu scramble, energy bites made with peanut butter, an assortment of fruits, and a coffee and tea service including milk alternatives. Registration with Aaron is required by May 24.

Bike maintenance clinics will be planned based on how many people register. Meeting times will be coordinated with those registered, with the first event tentatively set for one day between May 23-27 over the noon hour. The intention of these clinics is to teach and do some basic bike maintenance. As more people register, more events will be planned.

Bike SecurityTo help reduce bicycle theft, please register your bike on Garage 529 and bring your proof of registration to the TRU Sustainability Office for a free Garage 529 sticker! These stickers make it a snap for authorities like the RCMP to identify and reclaim bikes if they’re lost or stolen.

BC Commuter Challenge, June 5 to 11

Cycle, walk, carpool, transit, and telecommute; it’s all achieving the same goal: leave the car at home. That’s the name of the gamefor this event, so however, you choose to get your daily transportation accomplished, do it without your car whenever possible!
