The Lent Bumps 2002 were a series of rowing races held at Cambridge University from Wednesday 1 March 2002 until Saturday 4 March 2002. The event was run as a bumps race and has been held annually in late-February or early March since 1887. See Lent Bumps for the format of the races. In 2002, a total of 121 crews took part (69 men's crews and 52 women's crews), with nearly 1100 participants.
The bumps were scheduled to run from Tuesday 28 February. The racing was cancelled on the Tuesday due to extremely strong and gusty winds. Crews in the 1st divisions were unaffected by the cancellation, since the first scheduled race for the top divisions was on Wednesday.
