The fifth Bike to UW Day will take place Wednesday, Oct. 20, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at the University of Wyoming Simpson Plaza.

The free event encourages individuals to commute to campus by bicycle. Several organizations will be on hand to support riders with giveaways, free bike safety checks, bike registrations and information from bike-related organizations.

“This event promotes and encourages bicycle commuting as a safe, fun and inexpensive alternative to driving,” says Dan McCoy, co-chair of the UW Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Committee.

He says the committee wants to promote a few initiatives that support cycling on campus, such as registering bikes with the UW Police Department (UWPD), and a website that serves as a one-stop shop for bike-related resources for campus: www.uwyo.edu/bike.

Additionally, the committee will distribute updated bike maps for campus and surrounding areas to help commuters navigate to work or school.

Those who show up on bicycles at Simpson Plaza will receive:

-- Free bike safety checks performed by local bicycle shops All Terrain Sports and the Pedal House.

-- Free bike lights to those who register their bikes -- while supplies last -- provided by UWPD.

-- Free bike maps.

-- Information provided by local bike organizations.

The UW Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Committee, UWPD and the UW Outdoor Program sponsor Bike to UW Day.
