Gussied up cyclists to hold Bike Prom in Lexington Saturday

Would prom be more fun on a bicycle?

At Bike Prom, an annual event that benefits the Living Arts and Science Center, a crowd of prom-clad cyclists will cruise downtown Lexington Saturday evening and rekindle those teenage memories.

Though three-piece suites and dresses are encouraged, there is no dress code. For those who don't have their own bikes but still want to get their prom on, participants can rent bikes and return them at the end of the day.

Registration begins at 5 p.m. at the Living Arts and Science Center on the 300 block of Martin Luther King Boulevard. Cyclists will then wind through downtown, where they will stop at booths from local businesses before finishing the ride at an afterparty at The Break Room on Manchester Street.

Each stop gets riders a punch in their prom card, and at the end of the night, prizes will be awarded and the Bike Prom King and Queen will be crowned. Participants can register for $10 at the Living Arts and Science Center's website, http://www.lasclex.org/index.php/events/bike-prom.
