Go By Bike Week

NIC is celebrating Go By Bike Week!

This year’s theme is #AnyRideCounts – walking, cycling, transit, car pooling. Whether you’re going to and from work, to get groceries, to get some fresh air or meet up for a coffee with friends, trail rides, pump track laps, recreational rides – every thing counts.

Each NIC campus has a team this year. The NIC teams are open to anyone who wants to join: employees, students, partners, friends. All are welcome!
