Big Blue Cycles is a fleet of 160 bicycles available to students living in campus housing who sign a commitment (PDF) not to bring a car to Lexington. The bicycles for this program will be commuter-style, 8-speeds equipped with fenders, a lock, a helmet and a bell. Participating students will be guaranteed the bicycle for the entire academic year. Bicycles will be due back at the end of the spring semester. If more than 160 students apply for the bikes, a random drawing will be used to select the group of students eligible for the program.

All bikes have been assigned for 2014-2015. We will post an update for next year in early spring!

See FAQs (PDF) for additional details and important dates.

Funding to purchase the Big Blue Cycles was provided by a partnership between the Student Sustainability Council, Parking and Transportation Services, and the Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration. All participants will receive a bicycle helmet, thanks to the UK HealthCare Level I Trauma Program and a lock, thanks to the UK Student Government.
