Rocket Wheels welcomes spring with campus bike ride

The bikes are back on campus. After being stored out of the elements during the winter, Rocket Wheels is back up and running at The University of Toledo for students to bike across campus.

UT will welcome the spring biking weather with a group bike ride around Main Campus starting at noon Wednesday, March 16 at the bike racks behind Rocket Hall near the horse sculptures. The hour-long ride will take participants around campus to identify the Rocket Wheels stations and bike rack locations.

The ride will end at the Q, located in the Flatlands between Parks Tower and the Academic House, where there will be free food and prizes, including a bike that will be raffled off. Local vendors, including Wersell’s Bike and Ski Shop, Spoke Life Cycles and Jimmy Johns, will help celebrate the return of Rocket Wheels.

The Rocket Wheels bike-sharing program launched in October allowing students to check out bikes on Main Campus at three locations: near the northeast entrance of Rocket Hall, by the south entrance of Palmer Hall and on the northeast side of West Parking Garage.

The program is now also open to UT faculty and staff.

Bikes can be checked out for six-hour intervals and must be returned to the same location from where they were checked out. Students already registered for Rocket Wheels do not need to re-register to continue using the program this spring.

In the event of severe weather, the bike ride will be rescheduled for March 23.
