One lucky University of Houston student who filled out a survey about biking on campus is the winner of a brand new bicycle.
The online survey, which was created by the UH Office of Sustainability, was filled out by 1,744 students, faculty and staff by the time it closed on May 1. Those who completed it could then enter their name into a drawing for the bike, which was donated by Blue Line Bike Lab.
Camille Mullery’s name was drawn. She won an Electra Cruiser 1 bike valued at $500, which she picked up May 14 at the Office of Sustainability.
The short survey asked questions that will be used to improve the biking environment for the UH community. The data is being collected and will be incorporated into a report, with recommendations being developed for improving biking on campus.
“We want to thank everyone who took the time to fill out the survey,” said Sarah Kelly, program manager for the Office of Sustainability. “We will now be able to use the information we received to effectively assess the biking situation and make informed recommendations for improving it.”
