The Greater University Service Foundation is proud to announce our support for a terrific new opportunity for students at Washington University to explore the greater St. Louis community beyond the grounds of the University.

The Bubble Butt Bike Blowout will burst the so-called WashU bubble. Participants will learn St. Louis biking infrastructure, eat lunch in the historic Hill neighborhood, explore Tower Grove Park, and experience Grovefest in the Grove, while meeting community members along the way.

The event will take place at 11am on October 5th. For more information, visit

We hope that participants in this great event not only gain agency within St. Louis, but also share their experiences back on campus, sparking conversations directed at the complex social and physical barriers that prevent students from becoming active citizens of this city.
