3rd Annual "On Grounds Bike Sale" Held at UVA

Posted: Updated:

Monday, University of Virginia students are navigating campus on two wheels thanks to the third annual On Grounds Bike Sale.  Blue Ridge Cyclery and C-Ville Bike & Tri set up shop outside Newcomb Hall to encourage students to bike to class.

Many UVA students say it truly is a convenient way to get to class quickly, and the sale gave them a variety of bikes to choose from - in the right price range.

"It's really nice to just kinda walk over here. I got a lot of stuff to do today since first years have a lot of scheduling things we have to do, so it's nice to just get this done real quick," said Joe Murphy, who bought a bike from the sale.

UVA's Department of Parking and Transportation hosted the sale. Officers with the UVA Police Department helped register current and new bikes.
