BIKE COMMUTING 101:

Bicycling to campus can be fun and great for your well-being. Research indicates that those who bike to work are the happiest with their commute.

On Thursday, April 5, join Rick Holt from Human Resources and Payroll (a League of American Bicyclists certified instructor) and Bethany Usher, associate provost for undergraduate education and part-time bike commuter, for Bicycle Commuting 101 in Merten Hall, Rm 1204.

Rick and Bethany will share information to help you feel more confident about getting to campus on two wheels. The session will cover basic bicycling information, such as bicycle selection, fit, inspection, gearing, cadence, clothing, accessories, and routes to campus. Mason Transportation will share information about bike resources during the session.

Sponsored by Mason Transportation and Human Resources and Payroll, the training is open to all faculty, staff, and students.

Register online. For questions, contact transpo@gmu.edu or 703-993-2828.

    Come celebrate Earth Day with us!

    Sustainable Mason’s Earth Day EcoFest & LLC Block Party is an outdoor sustainability festival. It will be held on Earth Day, April 22nd, from 11:00am-2:00pm on the lawn behind the MIX@Fenwick Library (it is the flat lawn between the MIX and Sandbridge Hall). [Rain backup location = inside the MIX@Fenwick, same day/ time].

    Interactive Tabling:

    This open air/ outdoor festival is a collaboration between the Office of Sustainability, Mason LLCs, and Mason Dining, and will feature many Mason and community partners. Stop by to learn what Sustainable Mason can offer you including...  Smithsonian at Mason courses, sustainable study abroad or trips opportunities (#Peru #Caribbean?! etc), funding and projects through the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and PGF, Living Learning Communities, and 'green' student groups... also check out what other students are up to (#SustainabilityProjects). Also take part in activities like creating seed pods or learning how to compost!

    Sustainable Market:

    There will be mini-Farmer’s Market & sustainability product market (!!), as well as GOGA's Annual Seedling Sale – so be sure to bring a few bucks to support 'green' products like Mason's very own honey, or goat milk soap, and get your plants!

    Art/ DE-Stress:

    We will also have places for folks to create their own art projects ("paint" your own FREE reusable Starbucks cup, or color in an adult coloring book on the lawn), draw inspiration from some of Mason's sculpture and upcycling artists work around you!

    Donation Boxes

    We will have donation boxes – have any extra clothes you're not taking with you? Bring your clean, lightly used clothes and shoes or even a bike you want to donate (instead of leaving it behind at Move Out)!

    FREE STUFF!?

    And of course it wouldn't be a Mason event without some FREE giveaways, as well as plenty of FREE food and FREE smoothies as well (while supplies last!)
