Bike-to-Work from Manhattan (Friday, April 22nd)

Friday, April 22nd.  There will be two rides -- a moderate-to-fast paced morning ride along the shortest route (Riverside Dr. and 9W), and a mellow evening ride along the scenic route (River Road and Riverside Park by the Hudson).  The morning ride will leave at 8am from the front of Grant's Tomb.  The evening ride is tentatively planned to leave at 5:30pm from in front of the Geoscience building at Lamont.  The evening ride may end with a gathering somewhere for beers.

Office and Grounds Spring Cleaning and Recycling (April 18th-22nd)

It's time to clean out your offices again!  The Traffic Dept. (x8865 or x8864) will be available all week to provide large recycling bins for delivery and pick up.  Clean out all those old, dusty proposals from the back of your file cabinet and the copies of Physics Today from the 1980s. This is a great way to welcome spring and celebrate Earth Day!  You are also encouraged to consider the grounds around your respective buildings.  Help pitch in by picking up any litter around your areas.
