UREC Bike Shop

If you need help from an expert, take your bike over to the University Bike Shop, located at UREC Outdoors, in Room 102 of the HPER building. Their hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 12 Pm – 6 Pm. Not only is this a full service bike repair shop, but you can also rent work stations, complete with tools, to work on your own bike with experts close at hand. This is a great way to learn more about bike repair and maintenance.

For those wishing to take a longer ride off campus or tackle some mountain trails, UREC Outdoors offers mountain and touring bike rentals for time periods ranging from a half day to a week. Anyone with a valid University or University Recreation (UREC) I.D. may check out bikes, helmets, and bike racks. Reservations can be made in person up to a week in advance. Click here to for general guidelines for equipment rental from UREC Outdoors.

Bike Projects

Oak Ridge Mountain Bike Trail

A system of paths includes decomposed granite trails, gateway mountain bike trails, cedar steps, and flagstone trailheads. Each natural surface provides a unique experience. The Oak Ridge is the first of three natural-surface trail installations on the U of A campus to be completed over the next couple of years. The work is supported with a grant from the Walton Family Foundation along with U of A matching resources for site work and land allocation.

Discovery Bikeway

The University of Arkansas Office For Sustainability has led the implementation of the Discovery bikeway as a convenient shortcut for cyclists who want to avoid pedestrians during class change. Cyclists now have another reason to use the route - a much safer path through the parking and loading zone. Green paint is used to raise awareness in potential conflict areas alerting cyclists and drivers to use caution.

Fix-it Stations

The University of Arkansas has several bike fix-it stations located around campus to make it more convenient for you to make small adjustments and fixes to your bike. These bike repair stations also provide a full array of hand tools and convenient work stands. Other free public air pumps can be found at the Office for Sustainability on Harmon Avenue, UREC Outdoors at the Health, Physical Education and Recreation Building, and at some residence halls.

Wayfinding Breadcrumb for Bikes

Wayfinding

The University of Arkansas has begun implementing pavement wayfinding markers around campus to make it easier for bicycles and pedestrians alike to make navigating the University grounds easier. The markers will also improve bike routes through campus directing creating more direct routes through areas that allow cyclists to avoid pedestrians during class change.
