Photo Friday | Geaux Velo

Happy National Bike to Work Day! Did you bike to work today? Let me know how your commute was in the comments below!

For today's Photo Friday, I thought it was a good time to share a new program on the UL Lafayette campus - Geaux Velo! Launched in March of this year, this bike share program has three stations (one at Cajun Field, one near the U, and one near Griffin Hall and the parking garage), allowing you to check out and rent bicycles to get around campus, or even around town.

Many larger cities in the United States and around the world have city-wide bike share programs, so it's amazing to see our college adopt such a useful tool for students and faculty. Even if you don't have a bike, Geaux Velo allows you to participate in National Bike to Work Day for a very minimal cost. Even between semesters, the bikes are available for use.

The UL Lafayette Office of Sustainability spearheaded the initiative to bring the program to campus, and has already seen success in just a few months.

The best part? You don't have to be a student or faculty member to create a Geaux Velo account! Anyone can register at the Geaux Velo website.
