The University of Miami is recognized as a bike-friendly university by the League of American Bicyclists. This places us among a small group of elite universities that have also earned the Bronze designation. Our goal is to continue to promote and encourage bicycling as recreational and mobility options for our campus.
The University promotes biking as a transportation model for students, faculty and staff. To support this model, the UBike Committee consisting of students, faculty, and administrators from various units and divisions, meet regularly on issues affecting bike safety and biking as a transportation model on UM’s campus.
As a Bike Friendly University and with the support of the UBike Committee, we are continuously improving the biking environment as recommended by the League of American Bicyclist. Improvements include the addition of bike racks on campus, covered bike racks, and wider sidewalks providing for a safe and enjoyable biking experience around campus.
To start taking advantage of the amenities available on campus, including repair stations, air pump stations, and access to showers, bring your bicycle and Cane Card to the UM Police Department located at the ground floor of the Flipse Building and register it with UM Police Department. Registering your bike will aid UM Police find your bike if it is ever lost, stolen, or confiscated for non-compliance with the University bike policy. Individuals that register their bicycle with UM Police Department will receive a free U-Lock.
