Bicycling is a great way to build exercise into your day and as a bicycle friendly University, UNM makes riding your bike safe and easy. Here are several programs to help you bike to, from, and around campus.
Bike Racks and Lockers
Parking and Transportation Services offers bike racks and lockers around campus to make it easy for you to securely and safely store your bike. Check out details on the PATS bike page.
Parking and Transportation Services also provides Lobo Bikes, a free, yearlong bicycle loan program for UNM departments. These bikes can help you get around campus for all your work-related trips.
Recreational Services provides the Outdoor and Bicycle Shop in Johnson Center. They are a complete bicycle repair facility, servicing all makes and models of bikes. They also rent bikes by the day or week.
