Bike To Campus Day

Bike To Campus Day celebrates bicyclists of all stripes with a welcome event on the Plaza of the Americas in the fall and spring semesters. Cyclists who attend are treated to a light breakfast and coffee along with resources from Transportation & Parking Services, UPD, FDOT PedBike Safety Resource Center, UF Office of Sustainability, Gator Dining and more. Stop by for a bite, register your bike, grab free lights and a free helmet, and find out how UF can help you ride more!

Sustainable Transportation Fair

The UF Office of Sustainability hosts the Sustainable Transportation Fair each fall on the Reitz Union North Lawn to showcase sustainable transportation options that gators can take advantage of on campus and in their personal lives. UF Bikes hosts a Fix-Flat-Challenge table where we teach attendees to fix flat tires on their bikes and give away flat repair kits for those who complete the brief training. We also host an e-bike demo.

Light & Helmet Giveaways

UF’s bicycle programs, the University Police Department and the Office of Sustainability partner to raise awareness of the need to have lights on at night while cycling. During special nights throughout the year, UPD and UF bicycle interns and staff will be out around campus providing free light sets and helmets courtesy of the Florida Department of Transportation. These events are also a great time to register your bike for free!
