Get a FREE bike if you don’t bring a car to college!

Ripon College, a small liberal arts college in the middle of a central Wisconsin cornfield, is giving a Trek 820 mountain bike (plus helmet and lock) to every student who pledges not to bring a car to campus for the 2008-2009 year. link

Pretty sweet. I'd actually prefer to have some store credit at a local bike shop, but hey a "free" bike. How cool would it be if the University of Iowa started a free bike program?

I think this is a fantastic idea. It would be interesting to investigate whether the city and/or university would be willing to put money towards a similar project here in IC. Waaay too many people who live too close to everything they do with cars in this town!
