History of MIT PN2K
MIT PN2K is an ASA-recognized, student-led organization and the MIT chapter of The Phyo Nyi Nyi Kyaw Memorial Foundation, Inc. The MIT club was established in 2014. MIT PN2K co-hosted its launch event in September 2014, MIT Bike Fest, with the MIT Graduate Student Council sustainability subcommittee. The Bike Fest was the only event that held, for the first time ever in MIT history, a bicycle tour around MIT's campus. MIT PN2K repeated its success the following September 2015. Since its beginnings, MIT PN2K has held 16 bike events, with free safety repairs occurring nearly every month.

What does MIT PN2K do?
We bring together friendly folks from Boston/Cambridge/MIT during our bike safety repair events (it's a chill, party-atmosphere with free music, food, and bikes). MIT PN2K members who are also Boston Bike Party enthusiasts help to lead convoys from MIT PN2K's Student Center to Copley Square on the second Fridays of the month. MIT PN2K will be organizing more social/casual bike rides to popular places like Walden Pond, Blue Hill, the Charles River Esplanade, and more on a regular basis. Catch our next bike ride here.
Interested in attending one of our bike events? Keep an eye on our calendar or subscribe to our mailing list. We are currently based at MIT. Please reach out if you would like to collaborate or help us expand our reach in your school or city. We believe everyone can bike more and we are enthusiastic to make more cycling gear accessible and help create cross-city friendships by creating more cross-town cycling opportunities.
