UC Berkeley provides resources, information, and a variety of bike parking options for the campus community. With our partner and local bike organization Bike East Bay, we offer free Urban Cycling 101 classes on campus at Dwinelle Hall, lists of resources for new and seasoned cyclists, and opportunities to participate in fun events like Bike to Work Month in May!
We also strongly suggest everyone registers their bike with UCPD. Please note, due to COVID-19 restrictions on campus, UCPD bike registration hours may change. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Bicycle racks are provided at convenient locations throughout the central campus area. To reduce the risk of theft and vandalism, the campus is also equipped with three secure, covered parking facilities that are free of charge for University affiliates.
Cyclists are advised to invest in a high quality lock for maximum security. On campus, bikes must be locked to a University-designated bicycle rack and must not impede or block any campus thoroughfare or facility.
Use the free Secure Bike Parking inside of our three sponsored locations (If you have a personal scooter, you may use the Bancroft Structure).
Please note that the turnaround time from application approval to access may take up to ten business days.
For students, staff, and faculty that would like to use one of two bikeshare programs in and around UC Berkeley.
