So, we know that Lexington is already a pretty bike-friendly city, right? Well, we’re not done yet! Lexington’s beloved Legacy Trail is continually extending. Of course, we’re excited because now we can practically ride from Transy to the end of the Legacy Trail and back with little to no traffic contact. This is rad. Wanna know what’s even rad-er? The final proposed route goes all the way past Transy and down to the Isaac Murphy Memorial Art Garden on 3rd Street! That’s like, what, a 24 mile ride total? Heck yeah, Lexington. We’re the coolest.
This Sunday, Lexington will continue its awesomeness by holding the annual 2nd Sunday Event. From 3-5pm on Sunday, October 12, the roads between West Sixth Brewing and Isaac Memorial Art Garden will be closed to traffic!
If you’re interested in taking advantage of this awesome event promoting healthy, sustainable living, Transy will be holding a short (4ish mile), safe refresher on how to ride a bike, and how to do it properly, as a part of 2nd Sunday. Meet us in the Transy Bikes Shop at 3pm on Sunday, and we’ll take you on a stroll down to the National Boulangerie, just past the end of the closed roads, buy you a late lunch, and bring you back!
Sounds cool to me. Don’t forget, you don’t need your own bike! You can rent one of our very own!
We rode. We ate. We rode. We ate. We rode… you get the point. If you didn’t make it out to Savory Cycle this year, you sure missed out! Shout out to all the dudes and chicks at Broke Spoke for making this ride happen–the Transy Bikes crew had a fantastic time. 70 miles and lots of tasty meals later, we’re ready for next year! Go Broke Spoke!
Anyone can join us on these rides, faculty, staff, students, alums, friends, family, you name it! We’ll do a 30 mile ride (no drop, between 10-15 mph) and eat some tasty food at Windy Corner afterward. Take advantage of this awesome weather before it’s too late!
Next Scheduled Rides:
Sunday, September 21st, 9am-1pm
Sunday, October 5th, 9am

The initial I-don’t-want-to-be-at-school-yet stress is finally winding down.
So, it’s time to get on a bike!
This semester we’ve got lots in store for the Transy Bikes program, including weekly workshops, weekly urban rides, and bi-weekly road rides to our favorite Windy Corner restaurant!
Grab your bike, rent a bike, grab a helmet, and let’s get going!
