Occidental Bike Share

Occidental Bike Share is a Student Service. We rent bikes weekly and do maintenance and repairs for students' bikes. Explore Los Angeles using the most interesting, environmentally friendly, efficient and healthy means possible: THE BICYCLE!

What we do: Loan bikes (they're free!) to Occidental students a week at a time. Our knowledeable mechanics will fix (or help you fix, if you want to learn) any issues with your own baby--flat tires, broken spokes, tuneups, etc. We also hope to organize some group rides this year, in the spirit of the Midnight Ridazz. Remember: KEEP RIDING! (and wear your helmet.)

[09/27/17]   Hi!

We are hosting our first group ride of the semester this saturday 9/30! We will be biking along the LA river to the Art Walk in Arts District in Little Tokyo/The Arts District. The ride is about 8 miles, with a mix of some urban riding, but mainly on the Los Angeles River which has a beautiful and flat bike path. We would be meeting at the Bengal Room at 330, and heading out around 345. The Art Walk goes until 9pm, so it is completely up to you how long you want to stay there and what you want to do. We will probably be taking the gold line back and then biking from highland park.

space is limited- first come first serve! to rsvp email [email protected], or message Khloe or Nick. see you saturday!
