Celebrate Cycling at PSU
Monday, October 11, 2010 - 4:30pm to Monday, October 11, 2010 - 6:00pm

Learn about PSU’s own Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation, focused on research and education to integrate bicycling and walking into everyday life.

Connect with resources for cycling on campus to make your ride better, from new bike parking to the Bike Hub.

Meet local author and bicycling expert Mia Birk and hear stories from her new book, Joyride.

Written as a stylistic blend of memoir, rollicking stories, and lessons, Birk shows that bicycling can be a significant and incredibly positive means of transportation and an economic powerhouse for businesses who are realizing the health, safety, economic, environmental, and livability benefits of integrating bicycling and walking into daily life.

While many books today extol the pain of our world’s traffic congestion, air quality, and economic, safety, land-use, and health problems, Joyride is the antidote, offering hope to any and everyone interested in changing our world for the better, one pedal stroke at a time.

Monday, October 11
4:30 – 6 pm
Presentation at 5 pm
