Beat the Hill April 22nd!

Apr 21, 2015 by Caytes (CJ) Liley

It may seem daunting, but reality sets in: the hill isn't as big as it looks. In fact, last semester, the average bike ride was FASTER than the average shuttle starting and ending at the same location. Imagine that! You'll get the health benefits of exercise coupled with getting to your destination faster without waiting in traffic and contributing to pollution on our planet.


Be a part of positive change on campus to a healthier, more sustainable UCCS: ride your bike! It doesn't have to be every day, week or month - every ride counts on the road to wellness.
