Ride to Wellness
The Ride to Wellness Odometer Program is a simple biking program designed to get faculty, staff and their family up and moving. Go at your own pace--no time limit applies.
You can use your own odometer or purchase one from University of Missouri Bookstores through a partnership with Healthy for Life. For each 500 miles you ride, you can earn great prizes--including a rebate for an odometer purchased from University Bookstores through this partnership.
The Cateye Velo9 sells for a discounted $20 at University Bookstores, and is the only odometer currently available for a rebate when it is purchased at a University Bookstore. Learn more about the Velo9 on the Cateye website, where you can also access the owner's manual and purchase accessories and replacement parts.
