Bike Month Challenge

Bike Month Challenge

Bike Month Challenge!

Join Northeastern University’s Bike Month Challenge on Virgin Pulse starting May 12th! Faculty and staff who join the Challenge will be eligible for Virgin Pulse rewards as well as a raffle. Everyone who rides their bike 6 or more times from May 12th through 31st will be eligible for the raffle. We encourage you to ride to work if possible, but all rides count. Even if you are not eligible for the raffle, you can still collect activity points through Virgin Pulse (try syncing your fitness device to the Virgin Pulse App). This challenge is open to the Global Campus Network and is a great way to connect with the Northeastern community!  

The Boston Campus will be celebrating everyone who enjoys biking on Tuesday, May 16th. Join us for coffee and breakfast in Centennial from 8:00 – 9:30 am (rain date May 18th). We will have Bikes Not Bombs available for ABC (air, break, chain) safety checks and advice on cycling around town. NUPD’s Community Engagement Team will be available to register bikes and discuss how to keep your bike safe from theft.
