Our semester rental drive was a huge success! We are now out of the $30 refurbished mountain bikes. There should be more available in September.
The bike program is still offering a Premium Rental Fleet by appointment only. This fleet of brand new bikes consists of Fairdale Daybirds that have a 3 speed internal hub, fenders, and chain guard. The price structure for this rental is $300 deposit, $50 first semester, $20 each additional semester.
If you stored your bike with us over the summer please remember to pick it up either Monday August 22 or Tuesday August 23 at the UMC Bike Station. Please note that the UMC bike station has moved to the North side of the UMC by the fountain. Direct any questions to email@example.com.
The UMC Bike Station will be re-locating Friday July 15th. Due to construction and tree removal in the immediate area, the station will be closed from Tuesday July 12 - Monday July 18th. The UMC Bike Station will re-open in its new location, adjacent to the UMC fountains, Tuesday July 19th.
The Folsom Bike Station, located near the Engineering Building, will re-open Monday August 22nd. The Folsom and UMC Bike Stations will be open Monday - Friday 9:00am - 5:00pm. Our Bike Station Mechanics are ready to help you stay in the saddle and bike safely this Fall. Come by for a visit and a tune up!
The Environmental Center's Bike Programs are hiring for a new outreach position: Bike and Bus Ambassadors. It will be the duty of the Bike and Bus Ambassadors to engage with students to promote safe cycling practices on campus and encourage using public transit through incentives and positive reinforcement. We are looking for current students who have a passion for cycling/transit and desire to spread the bike/bus love to fill this position. If you or someone you know may be interested email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Through out the school year, the UMC and Folsom bike stations are open Mon-Fri, 9:00-5:00 to help keep your bike in working order.
Bike station mechanics are unable to work on bikes that have not been registered. Be sure to register your bike. We will happily register your bike at either station for no charge during normal business hours.

CU has many programs to offer students to make acquiring, maintaining, riding, and parking bikes a breeze. Programs include:
The goal for the list is to share information specific to bike commute related topics and events, like Bike to Work Day, and to get feedback about how we can improve our services/outreach for cyclists.
