Bike to College Day


The DIT Smarter Travel Working Group is coordinating a Bike to College Day on Tuesday, May 4th with a range of activities and events during the day to encourage staff and students to get on their bikes. DIT already has a very high proportion of cyclists, and the activities are designed to encourage the 12% of the college population who cycle occasionally to become regular cyclists. The activities are described below:

Tuesday, May 4th

  • The first 300 cyclists into college will get a free Insomnia tea/coffee.
  • Free Cycle maintenance and safety class in DIT Bolton St at 1.00pm with Free Pizza
  • Free Cycle maintenance and safety class in DIT Kevin St at 2.15pm with Free Pizza

So if you?ve just got your new bike under the Cycle to Work Scheme or if you?re a Tour de France winner, we hope to see you cycling in on Tuesday for the first working day of the Summer!
