Bicycling At Sacramento State
An attractive alternative to driving a car is bicycling. Bicycling is a great way to commute to the campus and lets you get your exercise at the same time! There is a free bicycle compound on campus located adjacent to the Guy West Bridge. The compound accommodates approximately 420 bicycles and is free to students, faculty and staff. UTAPS student assistants staff the bike compound during the Fall and Spring semesters from 7:00am - 11:00pm, Monday - Thursday and 7:00am - 5:00pm on Friday. Additionally, bicycle racks are available for use throughout the campus. View the newest version of our bike brochure! Also, bicycle lockers are available for rent through ASI Peak Adventures at (916) 278-6321.
Located adjacent to the Guy West Bridge, the bicycle compound is staffed during the academic year Monday - Thursday from 7:00 A.M. - 11:00 P.M. and Friday from 7:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M.
Bicycle parking in the bicycle compound helps to reduce the chance of theft and vandalism. For more information please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (916) 278-7527.

From the Police Department: Bicycle Theft
Always lock your bicycle to a fixed metal rack in a designated bicycle parking area. A metal U-type lock is recommended. Take with you any parts that are quick-release and cannot be secured. Always record your serial number. It is a good idea to engrave your frame with your driver's license or identification card number. The department has an engraver and can loan it to you at the front counter.
In addition, it is recommended that you license your bicycle with the University Police Department so that the serial number and description is readily available just in case the bicycle is stolen. The Police Department is open 24 hours for bicycle registration.
By the way, the chances of recovering a stolen bicycle increase when a serial number has been entered into the California-wide stolen property data base. Minimize your losses ahead of time. Do not ride to campus on a high dollar bicycle.
