PN2K Event Calendar
PN2K and MIT PN2K work closely but hold separate events. Read more below about bike ride socials, meetings, and events. Click on each event in the calendar to learn more about the event taking place that day.
The Phyo Nyi Nyi Kyaw Memorial Foundation focuses on fostering bike safety knowledge for kids of current and aspiring cyclists from the community. In our curriculum, we combine both road etiquette, rules, and knowledge of one's rights with a basic understanding of impact of cycling on cardiovascular health.
Tykes for Bikes
Tykes for Bikes is PN2K's developing kids' and youth bike program. We plan to work with toddlers and youth from the Greater Boston biking community to teach safe bike riding and educate kids on the benefits of cycling on their health.
Brief history of PN2K's involvement with kids and youth eduction:
PN2K held four STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) hands-on, experiential-learning field trips with the support and collaboration of impressive founders, local start-ups, and labs. Read more about STEAM. We were also proud to award our first ever PN2K $500 Achievement Award to Lucie Sanon, first girl in her family to attend college. Read more here
Boston Bike Party convoy
Every second Friday of the month, hundreds of cyclists meet at Copley Square around 7:00 PM to ride in solidarity with Boston Bike Party. Members of PN2K have in the past led convoys from MIT to make it easier for members of the Cambridge community to bike over together because, as you will learn after joining, there is safety in numbers. There is always a theme for each ride so grab your costume and deck your bikes with colorful lights.
The MIT PN2K club is the chapter of the foundation started at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. MIT PN2K events cater to the local community and the majority of events are open to the general public. MIT PN2K hosts bike repair events (for regular repair and maintenance of all bikes) and bike rides followed by social outings. If your bikes are in need of repair, you must purchase membership.
MIT Bike Rides
There's nothing like riding together on a beautiful day in wonderful company. Come with us on our next bike ride and stay for the food and laughs.
MIT PN2K organizes casual bike rides around town to get people feeling more comfortable biking in the city. We go over briefly the rules of the road and give you tips and tricks that you can apply immediately. We obey all traffic rules, so how you ride with us is how you would normally ride on the road by yourself. Our rides are meant to give you more confidence and a familiarity with urban transportation and cycling routes in Boston. We meet at the MIT Student Center for our ride, then usually go out for a lunch/dinner social right afterwards. If you would like some simple bike maintenance services before our bike ride, you need to be a current PN2K member.
Regularly throughout the year:
We hold bike safety events, open to all, to keep you safe on the roads.
(*please check our site for upcoming dates!)
MIT PN2K hosts regular bike fests throughout the year that attract large numbers of current cyclists. Local bike professionals do brief minor repairs and bicycle safety checks for these cyclists who bring in their bikes. We have useful stations at the Bike Fest, including bike-lock touch-up stations, bike safety information and MTI campus bike maps, bicycle registrations, and the opportunity to purchase bike lights, helmets, and high-visibility member shirts. To participate in our bike repair stations and professional bike safety checks, you will need to purchase membership.
Join our PN2K brainstorming meetings, contribute your voice, and meet the people who make the magic happen.
Are you interested in bike advocacy and becoming more involved with the biking community? We believe that everyone has different skills to contribute, from design, computer science, marketing, finance, to bike mechanics. Joining is easy: just come to one of our monthly meetings (see our Calendar where we announce our dates in advance), or send us an email.
