Some UVa students were out Monday to promote a new initiative, one they hope will reduce the number of cars on the road.
They also say that it will show the benefits of using bikes to get around. They hope their message will encourage others to take an environmentally safe alternative to using their cars.
"To promote sustainable practices and behaviors around the university, and we just feel that bicycles add to that," said Harry Hibbitts, Bike Start Day Project Leader.
Along with giving out information, students handed out wrist bands, patches and safe bike route maps.
