Baltimore Bike Party

Would you like a free VIP parking spot at UB? It's all yours—just ride a bike to campus!

Biking Bits:
Tips for cycling to campus and around town.

Biking to campus benefits you and the planet:

  • Save money by not driving: Lose the expenses of gas, parking and insurance every month.
  • Avoid being stuck in Baltimore traffic.
  • Get into shape and feel healthier.
  • Keep the planet healthy.
  • Register your Bicycle with UB Police

    You'll submit relevant information that will be entered into a database. You'll be issued a registration sticker to put on your bike. In case of theft, the information on file may help to recover your property. The UBPD also makes bike locks are available. The UB Police are located at the Southeast corner of Mt. Royal and Charles Street.

  • UB Bicycling Club

    The club is not geared toward racing and competition, but coming together for group rides that open to students and typically faculty and staff. It also helps make "Bike to School" day in the spring a success and to advocate for bike friendly practices at the University.  To learn more visit the club Facebook page or join on Orgsync.  UB Student Scott Thomsen leads the club.

  • Bicycle Parking

    There is bicycle parking racks available at most of UB's major buildings.

    Indoor bicycle parking is available at the Maryland Avenue Garage (MAG). UB community members living nearby are welcome to keep their bicycles in the MAG if they register them with UB police and use them regularly.

    Sheltered bicycle parking is available at the Liberal Arts & Policy (LAP) building and at the Learning Commons, facing Gordon Plaza. Most racks are visible to UB's security cameras.

  • Lockers and Showers

    Lockers and showers are available to the UB community at the UB gym on the 4th floor of the Academic Center and the basement floor of the Angelos Law Center. 

  • Recreational Riding

    Get off the street grid and ride the trails near UB. The 9-mile Jones Falls Trail passes within two blocks of campus. The Gwynns Falls Trail starts in the Inner Harbor and is a 15-mile trail system. TrailLink can help you find places to ride near and far.

  • New Bicycle Infrastructure in Baltimore

    Coming in 2016-17:
