Biking @ AU

Bicycle Safety

Biking is a convenient, healthy, budget-friendly, and eco-conscious way to travel around campus and to explore the region. Remember that biking in a city might be very different from what you are used to, so to stay safe while biking, learn the laws and review safety recommendations. The League of American Bicyclists reminds riders to follow the law, be predictable, be conspicuous, think ahead, and ride ahead. They also offer videos and cycling tips.

Registering Your Bike

Registering your bike helps AUPD locate it if ever lost or stolen. Registration also allows us to track how many people on campus are using bikes so we can provide enough racks and resources. It's free and easy as the following steps:

  1. Visit the Parking Portal
  2. Click "Login" and select your affiliate status
  3. Select "Vehicles" at the top of the page
  4. Select "Add Bicycle" at the bottom of the page
  5. Enter all required bicycle information
  6. Once you submit your registration, stop by the Office of Parking & Commuter Services located on the Terrace Level of the Don Myers Technology & Innovation Building to receive your decal.

    Bike Repair Stations

    Stations include bike pumps, a bike mount, and maintenance tools. Proper bike maintenance will keep your bike running smoothly for a long time. Find stations at the following locations:

    • Letts/Anderson courtyard near the bike racks

    • Leonard Hall in the covered bike parking

    • School of International Service parking garage on terrace level

    • Spring Valley Building parking garage on level P1
