This initiative aims to encourage students, staff, and faculty to embrace sustainable transportation options, particularly biking, throughout the month of June. In collaboration with Healthy Workplace, Sustainability Carleton has an array of exciting activities planned to promote the benefits of cycling.

Free Bike Tune-Ups

Sustainability Carleton will also host a day of free bike tune-ups for faculty, staff, and students on campus. Come by and let them look at your bike, give you qualified advice, and give your bike a quick summer tune-up so you can take advantage of the many cycling paths Ottawa has to offer! We anticipate a lot of interest in this event, so registration will be required. We will draw names at random from the list of registrants. Stay tuned to our website and socials for more details and information about registration for the event.
