Celebrate with your fellow anteaters at our annual WhimCycle Festival of Bikes! Come learn about bike safety, eat delicious food and ice cream, race adult-sized tricycles, and win great prizes!
Visit each booth to win tickets for food and prizes. Learn how to shift gears while riding with traffic, maintain you bike, change or patch a flat tire, and secure your bike by registering and locking it properly. Each time you learn something new, you’ll earn a ticket for food or for prize raffles! You can also learn more about your different sustainable commuting options from representatives of the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), Metrolink, and UCI Sustainable Transportation staff.
Recycled bikes will be sold at a low cost to students, faculty, and staff with their UCI identification card. No need to worry about registration - bikes will be registered on the spot! Limit one bike per person for the entire festival.
Relive childhood dreams at the Tricycle Races station! Enjoy just riding around or race with friends and coworkers in the relay races. All participants earn tickets.

Wearing reflective, high-vis clothing is important for cyclists as it is way to make them more noticeable to vehicles on the streets, especially during the night-time. Every year, UCI Transportation designs and produces hundreds of custom, UCI biking shirts which we offer as prizes at Whimcycle to keep our bike commuters safe on their ride!
