Saluki Cycles hoping to start rolling

Daily Egyptian: Saluki Cycles hoping to start rolling: "Students on campus are trying to start a free bicycle-renting service on campus, but are finding themselves in a ditch when it comes to mustering up financial support.

Ryan Campbell, a senior from Batazia studying plant biology, developed the Saluki Cycles program. He received a grant in February to jump-start the idea, which he hopes will allow students, faculty and staff to rent bikes for a two day period at various locations around campus, including the Recreation Center and residence hall area offices."

Awards and Prizes added for Bike 2 Work Day 3

This year's Bike 2 Work Day, on Friday, May 20 will include one more trophy and two more sponsors. In addition to trophies for the person(s) who travelled farthest to work that day, a trophy will be given to the business that has the most employees use bicyles that day. The trophies will be awarded at a lunch provided by Carbondale Mayor Brad Cole, who promises to ride himself that day, along with other city and university employees, setting an example to the rest of the community on the benefits of bicycling.

In previous years, trophies were awarded to Carbondale Times editor Tom Riechmann and Mary Lavery, Kyle Harfst for longest distance traveled, and to Anne Johnson and David More, bicycle spokespersons.

The theme of "Bike 2 Work Day" in Carbondale is -- bicycle to work with a friend.

It's part of a national "Bike to Work Day" effort to encourage more people to bicycle more often. May is "National Bike to Work Month"; the week of May 16-20 is "Bike to Work Week."
