Celebrate Bike Week, April 9 - 13

It’s springtime in the Bluegrass, which means it is once again time for University of Kentucky Bike Week, presented by the UK Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) and UK Transportation Services. Bike Week will be held Monday, April 9 through Friday, April 13, and is part of Earth Days in the Bluegrass.

This year’s Bike Week includes five events throughout the week, including demonstrations of the campus do-it-yourself fix-it stations, a group ride to tour downtown Lexington murals and the seventh annual Bike to Campus Day.

Students who attend at least three Bike Week events and get their Bike Week passport stamped at each will be entered into a drawing to win a GoPro prize pack.

Whether you haven’t been on a bike in years or ride every day, there’s something for everyone during Bike Week. The week’s schedule is as follows:

  • 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Monday, April 9, Get Your DIY On! Fix-It Station Demonstrations
