Anteaters, come celebrate WhimCycle at Aldrich Flagpoles, where you can learn about bike safety, race adult-sized tricycles, eat delicious food and ice cream, and win great prizes. The festival will be on Tuesday, May 10 and Wednesday, May 11 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Win tickets for food and prizes by visiting each booth. Earn tickets when you learn how to shift gears while riding in traffic, change and patch a flat tire, maintain your bike, register your bike, and lock your bike properly! You can also learn more about the different sustainable ways to get to campus from representatives of the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), Metrolink, V-Ride, and UCI Sustainable Transportation staff.
Relive childhood dreams at the Tricycle Races! Enjoy just riding around or race with friends and coworkers in the relay races. All participants earn tickets. The winning team of each relay race gets an extra ticket!
