Join PTS for Pedalpalooza, PTS 101 K Week Events
New to campus? Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) is helping students get acquainted with navigating the University of Kentucky by bike, bus and car through several K Week offerings.
On Sunday, August 19, come join PTS and the Bicycle Advisory Committee for Pedalpalooza from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Student Center parking lot. Watch as nine-time National Champion stunt rider Mike Steidley demonstrates his riding skills. Students attending this event can pick up free gear designed to improve the comfort and safety of their bicycling experience, such as bicycle bells, seat covers, reflective pant straps and water bottles. Attendees may participate in skills challenges, giving them the chance to develop their bicycle knowledge and expertise in tasks like properly locking a bicycle and loading a bike on a bus.
PTS is also offering informational sessions on getting around campus during K Week 2012. “UK Parking and Transportation 101” will be held on Saturday, August 18 at 2 p.m., 231 Student Center, and on Monday, August 20 at 4 p.m., 228 Student Center. A PTS representative will discuss topics such as parking basics, campus buses, alternative transportation and more. Attendees will also have an opportunity to get answers to their questions. If you can’t attend either presentation, visit our New Student Page for a refresher before classes start.
Coordinated by the Office of New Student & Parent Programs in the Division of Student Affairs, K Week is UK's fall welcome week for freshmen.
