LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 16, 2017) In honor of National Bike to Work Day, University of Kentucky Transportation Services and the UK Bicycle Advisory Committee invite UK students and employees to celebrate campus cycling with a group lunchtime ride at noon Friday, May 19. Those interested should meet at Wildcat Alumni Plaza.

Participants will have the option of biking to either the Chevy Chase area or the South Broadway end of Main Street, adjacent to Triangle Park. Both locations provide a variety of restaurant selections. Group rides will return to campus by 1 p.m.
