Bike to the entrance of Fifth Third Field to join the Courteous Mass, a group ride around the city. Courteous Mass rides every first Friday of the month to help everyone learn to share the road.

Five Rivers MetroParks Bike to Work Day Pancake Breakfast
Friday, May 16, 7 a.m. - 9 a. m.*, RiverScape
This lively event draws hundreds of bike commuters from around the Miami Valley for a free pancake breakfast. Sinclair placed third last year, and every team member won a short-term membership to RiverScape Bike Hub. We are hoping to kick it up a notch to win the grand prize this year! Students are especially needed to ride as our chief rival UD has many student riders.
*Note: Full-time non-faculty employees must take vacation or personal leave for regular work time when participating in the May 16th event. Part-time non-faculty employees will not be paid for the time during which they participate in the May 16th event.
