Five Reasons to Bike at Appalachian
1. Save money
Opting to ride a bicycle around campus instead of a car will save you some serious cash.
2. Protect the environment
Biking helps to protect the environment by reducing emissions, a sustainable move for everyone.
3. Park with no hassles
Any student who has decided to bring their car to Appalachian can attest to the fact that finding a parking space on campus can be horrendus. The beauty of bikes is that you can park them virtually anywhere!
4. Get to class quicker
Bikes eliminate not only the wasted time searching for parking spaces, but also the wasted time spent sitting in traffic or taking roundabout routes. Thus, choosing to ride a bicycle might mean you are able to hit that snooze button one more time in the morning.
Bikes are a great opportunity for you to get in shape! It’s nice to be able to kill two birds with one stone and fight off the Freshman 15.
