Emory to host Bike There festival: Sophomore environmental studies major Michael Mintz gets behind the wheel of one of Emory’s seven electric Th!nk cars, now available for check-out for participants in the Alternative Transportation Program. The nonpolluting cars, on display at an alternative transportation fair held April 22 by the Dobbs Center, have a top speed of 50 mph and a range of about 50 miles on a single charge. Electric cars are not the only enviro-friendly option for Emory commuters; the University also provides incentives for people who would like to pedal to work. Emory is hosting the fifth annual Bike There Festival on Saturday, May 4.Click here or above for the full story. Photo by Jon Rou.
