UK Bike Week 2023

We’re celebrating cyclists during UK Bike Week, set for Monday, April 10, through Friday, April 14.

Students who attend at least three Bike Week events and get their Bike Week passport stamped at each will be entered to win a $100 gift certificate to a local bike shop! For those who would like to participate in Bike Week activites but don’t have bike of their own, bicycles can be checked out for free from the Wildcat Wheels Bicycle Library.
