Winter Bike to Campus Day Set for Feb. 7


Riding a bicycle is a growing mode of getting to, from, and around campus for students and employees alike, and for many, cold weather doesn’t deter their bike commute. On Wednesday, Feb. 7, from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. on the Funkhouser Plaza, UK Transportation Services is celebrating these all-weather cyclists with the second annual Winter Bike to Campus Day. The event is also presented by the UK Bicycle Advisory Committee.

Pause your pedals for coffee and hot chocolate at Winter Bike to Campus Day, which will feature on-the-spot tune-ups, courtesy of the Wildcat Wheels mobile shop, and hands-on demonstrations of loading bikes on a bus bike rack. Stop by to get information on campus and Lexington bike resources, answers to questions, and free bike-related giveaways, while supplies last.

Winter Bike to Campus Day builds on the tradition of education and encouragement efforts aimed at cyclists and those considering bicycling as a mode of campus transportation. Other campus bicycle events include Pedalpalooza, held annually during K Week, and Bike Week, held annually in April. This year’s Bike Week is slated for April 8 – 13.
