Sustainability Mini-Grant Supports Campus Bicycling Effort

Mount Mercy student Mark Mettler is the newest recipient of an "Ideas into Action" sustainability, mini-grant. While Mettler currently organizes an MMU biking club, under the auspices of student organizations, his grant award will help to offset costs associated with purchasing well-maintained, used bikes, bike equipment (helmets and locks), and providing classes and workshops in basic bicycle maintenance. Ultimately, Mettler will be sharing the health and sustainability benefits of biking in the Cedar Rapids community.

If the new biking club is approved, Mettler hopes to inform the Mount Mercy community of local biking opportunities, create social venues for those who enjoy biking, and promote the area's resources for cyclists. The mini-grant committee is proud to support this worthy project. Funding for the sustainability mini-grant program comes from a generous award from the Sisters of Mercy, West Midwest Community.
