Benefits of bikingBiking has many benefits. It’s good exercise for your body and mind.
Biking can also save you time and money. Cyclists can cruise through traffic and don’t need to worry about finding a parking spot, plus there’s no paying for gas, parking, and car insurance.
Biking is also good for the environment -- unlike cars and buses, cycling creates no air pollution. More cyclists in Birmingham means cleaner air, less traffic, and fewer parking lots.
Bike RegistrationWhile UAB doesn’t have a bike permitting requirement, it’s important to register your bike and personalize your bike so you will know what it looks like if it gets stolen.
Bike RacksUAB has selected a new standard rack for campus that is being distributed across campus, research, and hospital locations during the 2015-2016 Academic Year.
We also have a bike repair station on the Campus Green just outside the Blazer RLC and Commons.
How to Lock Your BikeSecure your frame and both tires for the most secure lock.
Avoid locking to handrails, as you may cause accessibility issues for others. Fences and trees should also not be used as bike racks.
