Bicycling is a sustainable means of commuting to, from and across campus. Ohio University and Athens City have continued to improve bike lanes to accommodate cycling activities as a means of transportation on campus and throughout surrounding city/county locations.
Bicycles should be stored in a designated bike rack, which are located across campus. Bicycles should be locked appropriately and are stored at the owner's risk. A U-Lock is highly recommended to prevent theft and tampering. Bicycles should not be chained to benches, sign posts, and other areas not designated as a bike rack.
For security purposes, it is recommended that any bicycle that will be kept on campus be registered with the Ohio University Police Department. A description of the bicycle (or picture) is needed as well as the bicycle's serial number.
