Campus Cycling: Michigan State Sells Cheaper Bikes to Students and Staff
The best way to get around any college campus is to cycle. Students and staff that bike to class can park right in front of buildings saving time and money.
Michigan State University (MSU) and Fuji bikes have partnered to encourage more cycling on campus by offering discounts to students and staff. Treehugger explains:
So it's with some excitement that MSU has joined Fuji University, a program that allows students, faculty and staff to buy new Fuji bikes at a discount. Oh, and there's also a university-owned and -operated bike shop to go along with it.
MSU is the only university in the Midwest, and one of only five in the nation, that belongs to Fuji University. Campus officials say they hope the partnership will keep more people (and greenhouse gases) off the roads, and make for healthier students.
Of course, students can buy a cheaper, used bicycle for their commute to and from class, but it is nice that Fuji and MSU are giving them a chance to buy a quality bike at a discount. Now all students and staff need are spartan helmets to accompany their bikes!
