Celebrate #BikeMonthWR

This past April, University of Waterloo president, Feridun Hamdullahpur, acknowledged the importance of our collective sustainable efforts, ensuring that our university is committed to having a positive impact on the environment. We celebrated our sustainability success and our plans going forward with a brand new #UWEarthWeek campaign, and our environmental activity continues to thrive today.

June is Bike Month in Waterloo Region, and the President’s Advisory Committee on Sustainability invites you to dust off your old beater bike, strap on your helmet, and join the University of Waterloo as we champion and promote cycling. There are various bike-themed events happening this month both on campus and in the community, giving UWaterloo members many opportunities to not only cut carbon emissions, but also get free bike tuneups, learn about bike safety, and even win prizes, like a $200 gift certificate for King Street Cycles. No spandex is required!
