Wildcat Wheels Bicycle Library

Wildcat Wheels 15th Anniversary

The Wildcat Wheels Bicycle Library (commonly referred to as Wildcat Wheels) is a nationally-recognized educational resource that provides free bicycle use and repair assistance to UK students and employees. 

Wildcat Wheels has two main components:

1. A bicycle library that takes abandoned bikes from campus and reuses them in the rental fleet, and
2. A student-run bike shop to assist with and teach bicycle maintenance and repair.  

All services provided by Wildcat Wheels, including bicycle rentals, are available to the UK community free of charge. It's a great resource for students and staff who choose to ride their bicycles to campus!

To learn more about the free bicycle check-outs, please visit our Bicycle Rental Options page.

The Wildcat Wheels Bike Shop is located on the first floor of Blazer Dining, near the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and Avenue of Champions.
