What fantastic weather to finish this Challenge in! Spurs one to spend as much time riding a bike as possible! Hope everyone had a great World Car-Free Day on Monday (Sept. 22nd). Ride on! It's a sprint for the finish line!!


Justin Mog

It's beastly out there! It takes true champions to keep riding in this heat & humidity! Can't wait for September! :) Ride On!...


Laura Trachtenberg

I usually help work it, but they lost my email address, so Have not heard from them. I will be riding from Seneca.


Justin Mog

Yeah, I'll be riding into UofL from Tyler Park on May 30th, too! Register for Bike To Work Day and you'll be entered into a raffle for a free bike:

Great ride to campus last Thursday, April 17th! Our monthly group bike commute rode from Iroquois Park to Belknap campus, following low-traffic bike routes almost the whole way! The sun was shining, and the cool temperatures were perfect for a ride to work. Next month our group bike commute will take place on May 30th, and coincides with Louisville's Bike to Work Day! Check out our bike initiative page ( for more information!


News from The University of Louisville

Rainy Day Commuting

Don't let these rainy and gloomy days keep you from commuting on your bike! Here are a few tips: Don't forget that in Louisville you're legally required to have a steady front light, and a steady or flashing red rear light. Of course that's probably always a good idea. A reflective vest or rain jacket is another appropriate addition. In addition to a rain jacket, a hat will help to keep water from dripping into your eyes. Fenders on your bike will keep the nasty water on the street from splashing up on your and your bike. Rain=clean, road water=bike trouble. You'll save yourself $ and a headache if you keep your bike protected. Not to mention you won't have an attractive wet streak running up your back. Finally, don't be a hero: if there's lightning or unsafe conditions, load your bike up on the nearest TARC bike and flash that UofL ID for a free ride!

Bike Month

May is bike month, and there's plenty of reason to get out and ride with the beautiful weather we've been having recently. Remember that May 30th is Bike to Work Day for Louisville. For more information about that and other great events coming up in the Louisville area, check out these resources: Bike Louisville (, Bicycling for Louisville (, and the University of Louisville Sustainability Council (
