Campus bicycle safety events scheduled this month

A typical safety checkpoint is set up in front of UD's Trabant Student Center
Several free bicycle safety events are being held on campus from now through the end of April for University of Delaware students, faculty and staff.

Members of the campus community are invited to drop by for information and giveaways and to learn how to take care of their bikes.

Remaining safety checkpoints are scheduled as follows:
  • Tuesday, April 8, noon-3 p.m. at the corner of North College Avenue and Ray Street near the pedestrian bridge to Laird Campus (complete)
  • Wednesday, April 16, 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on The Green at Delaware Avenue.
  • Wednesday, April 23 from noon-2 p.m. on The Green at Delaware Avenue in front of Wolf Hall.
These checkpoints are conducted by the Newark Bicycle Committee in partnership with the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT), the Newark Bike Project, and UD Police.

Have bicycles checked for proper tire inflation and other safety issues. Front and rear bicycle lights will be given out while they last, courtesy of DelDOT. [Full story on UDaily ...]
