Dust off your bike and ride it.
The University of Hawaii at Manoa is holding its first BikeUHM (pronounced "bike-um") on campus on Wednesday (Oct. 19).
Students, faculty and staff are invited to ride their bikes to campus. A two-hour fair at Hamilton Library Plaza, next to the newly installed bicycle racks, takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
There will be free mini-workshops in bike repair, maintenance and security by Cycle Manoa, a flat-tire clinic by the "Red Hot Ladies" of the Hawaii Bicycling League and a video demo of TheBus bike racks.
Got a bike question? Ask the Bike Doctor.
Giveaways include clip-on flashing lights and drawings for bike helmets and bike locks.
Bike parking on the Manoa campus is free at more than 50 bicycle racks. The campus is also the first in the state to implement sharrow markings (for lanes shared by both motorists and bicyclists). Yet only 9 percent of University of Hawaii at Manoa affiliates bike to school.
