There are three free bicycle compounds on campus, located adjacent to the Guy West Bridge, north of Benicia Hall and at the corner of Sinclair Rd/Moraga Way. The compounds accommodate hundreds of bicycles and some skateboards. Sacramento State Police Department Community Service Officers (CSOs) staff the bicycle compounds during the Fall and Spring semesters from 8:00am - 10:00pm, Monday - Thursday and 8:00am - 5:00pm on Friday. Additionally, bicycle racks are available for use throughout the campus. Bicycle lockers are available for rent through ASI Peak Adventures at (916) 278-6321.

Bicycle Theft: A Message from Sac State Police

How to lock your bike

Register your bike! 

The Sacramento State Police Department is open 24 hours for bicycle registration. A registered bike will display a serial number and description which are readily available in the event that the bicycle is stolen. The chances of recovering a stolen bicycle increase when a serial number has been entered into the California-wide stolen property database. Minimize your losses ahead of time. Do not ride to campus on a high-dollar bicycle.

See a diagram about proper bike locking technique.

Always lock your bicycle to a fixed metal bike rack in a designated bicycle parking area. Bicycles may only be locked to bicycle racks. 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 Sacramento State Police Department has an engraver and can loan it to you at the front counter.
