Then, it's time for students to stop by the UK Wildcat Wheels campus bike shop – from 1 to 5 p.m. in Blazer Hall basement – to turn in their passports to be entered into a drawing to win a free commuter bicycle. While there, bike owners can tune-up their wheels or help work on the fleet of bikes available free of charge to students, faculty and staff.
