Last Chance for Lunchtime Bike Ride, Aug. 8

A lunchtime bike ride will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 8, from noon-1 p.m. Bring your bike from home or check out a bike through the Flashfleet bike-sharing program at one of eight locations around the Kent Campus. Chris John from the Department of Recreational Services will lead participants on this 30-40 minute campus ride, as well as around the surrounding community. Please plan to meet at noon at the Flashfleet kiosk at the Kent Student Center. The ride will begin promptly at 12:10 p.m. 

Flashfleet locations include the Student Recreation and Wellness Center, Eastway Center, Van Campen Hall, Tri-Towers, Terrace Hall, Stopher-Johnson, the Kent Student Center and PARTA's Kent Central Gateway in downtown Kent. 

Registration is required and limited for the safety of the group. Helmets from home are strongly recommended. All full- and part-time employees are welcome to register for the ride.

Another ride will take place on Sept. 13, for your planning purposes.  

Lunchtime rides are a great way to enjoy the beautiful campus, get some exercise and moves in, and earn 10 Wellness Your Way Tier Two points. An Employee Wellness team member will be present for employees to “check in” prior to the start of the ride.  

If you have questions regarding the Flashfleet bike share program or how to register for Flashfleet, you may email John at
