We’re thrilled to see the start of our Fairplex Bike Riding program!

This program serves as a model for environmentally friendly and healthy living practices on our campus, starting with this employee bike program.

Thanks to the addition of several new cruisers and mountain bikes, our employees will be able to bike around campus, both for work purposes (getting to meetings/events), and for pleasure on their lunch breaks!

We’re very excited to implement this new initiative, and we look forward to adding additional healthy living practices in the future.
