Pedal power: President Williams, professors, staff and students celebrate Bike to Work Day to promote fitness

In celebration of National Bike to Work Day on May 20, President Williams rode to campus from his home with faculty, staff, and students. Their route took them through the Chevy Chase and downtown neighborhoods, where they were joined by additional Transylvania riders along the way.

May was first designated as National Bike Month in 1956 by the League of American Bicyclists and this year National Bike Day was May 20, when Americans were encouraged to bike to work and school. The month is designed to highlight cycling and promote safe bicycling.

As for commuters who cycle to work, Lexington is ranked no. 64 out of 244 communities with populations greater than 65,000, based on American Community Survey data compiled by the Census Bureau. Several members of the Transylvania community commute by bike regularly, and Transylvania has several bikes on campus that can be checked out by faculty, staff, and students who need to make quick trips around the city.

Transylvania’s Bike to Work Day was featured on the DC Streets blog, based in Washington, D.C., with other scenes from National Bike to Work Day.
