Big Blue Cycles is a fleet of more than 150 bicycles available to students living in campus housing who sign a one-year commitment not to bring a car to Lexington. The bicycles for this program are commuter-style, 8-speeds equipped with fenders, a lock, a helmet and a bell. Participating students are guaranteed the bicycle for an entire academic year. The bikes are due back at the end of the spring semester. If the number of applicants is greater than the number of bikes available, a random drawing is held to select students eligible for the program.
