A&S Brings in Two Awards in Bike Commuter Challenge

<p>May&rsquo;s bike commuter challenge was the most successful one in the history of the event, and the University of Kentucky earned first place in three categories (determined by size). UK Libraries IT, the Department of Chemistry, and the College of Arts &amp; Sciences Dean&rsquo;s Office all earned first place in their categories. By biking to work, the participants were helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and represented a sustainable alternative to using fossil fuels. Even though the challenge is over, many participants continue to ride to work.<br />

UK has been working on making campus more environmentally friendly, and their &ldquo;Big Blue Goes Green&rdquo; campaign is planning a Sustainability Fair in September, which will showcase the ways in which UK is making efforts to conserve natural resources, including expanding their bicycle trails and lanes.</p>
