Bike Programming on Campus

Bike Share Program (Green Bikes)

The bike share program provides an alternative form of green transportation to lessen on-campus vehicle traffic and reduce our carbon footprint at UR. The program was launched in the fall of 2009 with 35 beach cruisers. The bikes are available to all students, faculty, and staff to travel around campus in a fun and environmentally friendly way. To take advantage of this program, simply find a bike on campus and start riding!

Every year bikes are rolled out in August for use during the Fall semester. Come December, bikes are collected for repair and stored over the winter at the Weinstein Center for Recreation. Bikes are once again rolled out end of March for use during the Spring Semester, before being collected again in May.

If you find a bike that needs repair or is on campus after a collection period, please bring it to the OAR desk in the Weinstein Center for Recreation.

Bike Self-Repair Racks

There are two self-repair stations located on campus for the use of the University community. The first station is located in front of the Weinstein Center for Recreation, and the second station is located at the Gateway Apartments, near the Intramural fields. The self-repair stations include all tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance, such as tire inflation or changing a flat.
