Bikes, hikes, and automobiles were in the spotlight recently as Sustainable Skidmore promoted “Leave Your Car at Home” week. The student cycling club offered free bike maintenance, the GIS Center created a carpooling map to help employees find colleagues in their neighborhoods who could share rides, and more people walked or hopped city buses to and from campus.
