Bikes at UK and in Lexington

Welcome to a home page for UK and Lexington commuter-cyclists.  We hope to make Lexington a friendlier community for people who bike to work.

Why promote cycling?
Relieve UK's and Lexington's traffic and parking problems.  Do we really want to pave over the entire county?!  If not, we had better encourage people to travel by modes other than the one-passenger automobile.
Promote healthy lifestyles.  In the long term, cycling is one of the best forms of exercise -- and it's fun!
Improve Lexington's quality of life and sense of community.  The automobile culture leads to sprawl and isolation, but cyclists travel in neighborhoods, not through them.
The mild climate and the presence of the University make Lexington and cycling a perfect match.
