UWPD Seeks to Identify Cyclist Who Struck Pedestrian

January 29, 2016

The University of Wyoming Police Department seeks the public’s help in identifying a bicyclist involved in a collision with a pedestrian at about 11 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 27.

According to the pedestrian, she was walking on the sidewalk on the south side of the History Building when she was struck from behind by a yellow mountain bike. The bicycle was being ridden by a man, about 5-foot-6, wearing a light blue jacket.

If you have information about this incident, contact the UWPD at 766-5179 or text using keyword UWYO to 847411(TIP411).

Bicyclists are reminded that riding is allowed only on authorized bicycle paths. Riding a bike in a dismount zone or sidewalk may result in a citation and possible disciplinary action. Pedestrians have the right of way, and bicyclists must obey all traffic laws while riding on campus and within the city of Laramie.

All bicycles on campus also must be registered through UW. The registration is a one-time fee so, if you have already registered your bike, you need not do so again.

For those who are looking for bicycle repair, UW’s Outdoor Program provides tools and an area where students can come in and work on their own bikes. In addition, the program provides a series of bike-tuning clinics so people can learn how to work on their own bikes.

The Outdoor Program does not provide service or sell parts for individually owned bikes; it recommends that people who do not know how to do such work seek out a downtown bike shop. The Outdoor Program is located in the northeast section of the Half Acre Recreation and Wellness Center.
