The bike program issues bicycles of varying sizes (extra small, small, medium and large), according to the student’s height. A bike lock with a set code will be given upon bike issue. The option of borrowing a helmet is available, but not required.

Bikes are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

How Do I Get a Bike?

It’s easy! Just visit the recreation desk on the second floor of Memorial Hall and ask the staff to help you. There are no requirements, besides a valid college ID card. 

Return Policy

Bikes must be returned prior to closing on the same the day you borrow the bike.
