In February 2013 Green UiO conducted a transport survey in cooperation with the Institute of Transport Economics. One of the finding of this survey is that few of the employees use their bike on their trip to UiO, and even fewer of the students.

To promote cycling, UiO held a winter bike event at campus on the 14th of November. They collaborated with the employees of the bike group, UiO BIL, as well as the Bike Kitchen Oslo who was at the spot with four mechanics. Both students and employees stood in line to get free help to fix their bikes for the winter season.
Two hours were enough to attract more than 40 people, needing help to fix their bikes for the winter. There was also a cycle obstacle course and a bike quiz, both with prizes.
There was a great interest for the event, and many stopped by just to get some good tips on winter biking, and to get a free cup of coffee.
