RECycle Bike Rental Program
As a part of Campus Recreation philosophy, we want to promote a healthy lifestyle and overall wellness to the campus community. With the bike program we will have the opportunity to offer this outside the walls of the Fitness and Wellness Center.
With fuel costs constantly being a concern for all of us and parking spaces on campus being an issue, providing an alternative means of transportation to the campus community is at an all time high. With the Universities Siemens initiative, the Campus Recreation bike program is another way to contribute towards resource conservation and sustainability.
Maroon Bike Program:
The Marron Bike Program offers students, faculty and staff the opportunity to ride a bike to their destination and then place the bike in a bike rack without any cost to them. Maroon bikes are located throughout campus and should never be locked so that everyone has the opportunity to experience them.
For any bike that is experiencing issues follow the description via the stickers on the Maroon bike. Feel free to drop the bike off at Campus Recreation located at 1100 Paul Van Hoose Drive.
Remember to keep a lookout for any Maroon Bikes to help you get accross campus!
Checking Out A Bike:
Start by stopping by or calling the AP Base Camp @ 859-622-7334 Mon-Thurs 3:00-7:00pm to determine availability. When you pick up the bike, you will need your credit card and your student ID. The cost to check out a bike for the semester is $50.00.
During the summer, to check out / in a bike you will need to make an appointment with Adventure Programs. The AP Base Camp is located at the Presnell Building. Here's how to get there!
