UDOH Kicking Off National Bike Month with New Fix-it Station

WHAT: May is National Bike Month and the Utah Department of Health is celebrating early by opening a new bicycle fix-it station at its main building. The station will be available to employees and the public alike, and offers bicycle parking, as well as tools and an air pump to perform basic bike maintenance and repairs. 

WHY: The UDOH is committed to helping Utah become the healthiest state in the nation. Living an active lifestyle is a key element of achieving that goal. The bike station will help promote a bike-friendly environment, bicycle commuting, and general physical activity for employees and building visitors.

The UDOH Cannon Building is located near a Trax Station and the Jordan River Parkway trail, making it an ideal location for bicycle commuting. The League of American Cyclists also recently awarded the UDOH as a Bicycle Friednly Business with a bronze award.
