Celebrate Bike Month, bike to work April 25

In honor of Bike Month, a table will be set up in the portico to: create awareness for safe biking and the importance of sharing the road (for both motorists and cyclists); encourage biking as a safe and healthy form of transportation to and from work; provide literature about local cycling events, safety advocacy and clubs; provide a map of MUSC campus bike racks; and provide a map of safe access routes into MUSC.
In addition, Health 1st will be available to register cyclists, whose miles are eligible for inclusion in the MUSC Employee Wellness Program.
Public Safety will also help cyclists register their bike with the city.
The table will be set up from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. April 4, 11 and 18.
The Charleston Bicycle Company  will be in the Horseshoe from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. April 11 and 18 to sell items such as helmets, locks, lights, gloves, and reflective vest. The company will also set up a work stand to do some minor repairs.
On April 25, employees and students are encouraged to bike to work. A table will be set up from 7 to 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. to welcome cyclists with free snacks, and the MUSC Wellness Center will allow bike commuters to use its showers and lockers.
