Get on your bikes and ride: Be there for the UT Boo Ride Tuesday, Oct. 27, at noon on the University Parks Trail behind Carter Hall.

This will be the first Halloween-themed bike ride down the trail, according to Neil Tabor, UT sustainability specialist.

In addition, those wearing the 10 best costumes will win Sustainability, Energy Efficiency and Design T-shirts.

UT students are reminded they can check out a bike through Rocket Wheels, the new sharing program that started last month. For details, click here.

Tabor said this will be the first UT Boo Ride and that officials hope it will become an annual fun event that encourages bicycling, which is good for the environment and for one’s health.

The free, public event is being hosted by the UT Student Green Fund in collaboration with the UT Sustainability, Energy Efficiency and Design Initiative.
