Registration for New Wildcat Wheels Fleet Now Open
LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 18, 2014) ― Registration for Big Blue Cycles – the new University of Kentucky Wildcat Wheels Bicycle Library fleet – is now open. The fleet of 100 bicycles is available to students living in campus housing who sign a commitment not to bring a car to Lexington. Eligible students may register at www.sustainability.uky.edu/bbcsignup.
The Big Blue Cycles bicycles will be 8-speed commuter bicycles equipped with fenders, a rear rack and a bell. Participating students will be guaranteed the bicycle for the entire academic year. The addition of the new bicycles was made possible by a funding partnership between the Student Sustainability Council and Parking and Transportation Services. All participants will also receive a bicycle helmet, thanks to the UK HealthCare Level I Trauma Program, and a lock, thanks to Student Government.
