Bicycle Information

A bike is a great way to get around campus, especially if you are in engineering. Buy a lock for your bike (and front and rear lights if you plan on riding at night). A helmet is always recommended.  Make sure you cover your seat with a plastic bag since you will end of parking your bike outside in the elements.  Remember to register your bike with Public Safety when they come to the dining hall at the beginning of the school year. 

You can visit the below shops in town for all your biking needs:
