    Each bike must be registered through this form.

    • All bikes must be (re-)registered annually (every fall semester).
    • Bike Room users are responsible for their bike and belongings.
    • Bike docks may not be reserved when a bike is not present; please remove all locks and personal belongings.
    • Each user may occupy only one dock at a time. Do not block or claim other docks to prevent them from being used by others.
