ESPN films Huskers bike valet segment Friday

ESPN is filming a short piece on Friday about the new bike valet program offered in Lincoln during Husker home games.

Attendees who bike to campus on game day can store their bikes in Cook Pavilion, just one block from Memorial Stadium. The segment about the program will air Saturday.

Organizers are inviting the public to "wear red and bring a bike" to Cook Pavilion on Friday to participate in the filming. ESPN originally planned to shoot the segment at UNL between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., then between noon and 2 p.m. today, but now will film between 11 a.m. and noon, according to university officials.

The Bike Shop at UNL Campus Recreation, BikeUNL and Nebraska Athletics introduced the bike valet service for the first time this year.

Cook Pavilion opens to cyclists two hours prior to kickoff and closes one hour after the game ends.

All bikes will be supervised by UNL Bike Shop staff. To verify bike owners, staff will take photos of the cyclists and their bikes at drop-off.

It's free, though donations are accepted. Donations will be used to install on-campus bike pumps and workstations.

Organizers hope the new service will help alleviate heavy game-day traffic.
