Riding a bike or walking is fun, healthy, and environmentally friendly commute mode. There are over 3,000 bike racks spaces located throughout campus. There are also four locked bike cages available at no cost for those that have registered their bikes on campus.

UCR provides bike amenities such as offering several self-fix-it stations for do-it-yourself light repairs. Pedals bike shop is also conveniently located on campus every Wednesday between 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM in Lot 19, offering repairs, parts and accessories. Transportation Services also provides free bike registration and issues bike licenses daily between the hours of 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM.

Faculty and staff with a minimum 50% appointment or full-time graduate students are eligible to participate in the Bicyclist and Walker Program. Applicants may not hold a daytime commuter parking permit, may not live in campus housing,  and must reside within walking/cycling distance from campus.
