Jayme Johnson, right, a doctorate student in genetics, attended a bike commute event Wednesday on the West Campus Plaza as part of Bike to Work Month. She asked Brian Williams, Duke's transportation demand coordinator, about perks associated with being a registered bicycle commuter at Duke. Johnson has pedaled three miles to Duke regularly for five years and rides to the gym, meetings and shopping. "I have a trailer I can hitch up, so I can even carry 50 pound bags of feed for our rabbits on my bike," she said.

Faculty and staff can learn more about biking resources at Duke through Parking and Transportation or at Bikeduke.com.
