Bike to campus

Academic bike challenge    Great bike giveaway

Whether you are a student, staff or faculty, UNB encourages you to use active transportation for your commute to campus. Biking to campus is a great way for the UNB community to live sustainability. When you arrive to campus, park your bike at one of the 29 bike racks locations on the UNB Fredericton campus.

Why bike to campus?

There are so many reasons to commute to campus by bike:

Cycling to campus avoids the carbon which would be produced from your vehicle burning fuel during your commute. You help fight climate change and contribute to a healthier environment by reducing your carbon emissions.

Improve your physical health by cycle commuting. Choosing to bike means commuting to campus while you get your daily exercise. Give yourself a positive start to your day and keep your body healthy too.

Spending time outdoors in the fresh air improves your mental wellbeing. Put your mind at ease and take a break from technology.

Biking to campus instead of driving reduces your fuel costs to zero dollars. You will also reduce car maintenance costs and other vehicle-related expenses. The campus bike racks are free and easily accessible everywhere on campus.

Biking to work allows you to avoid rush hour traffic. Exercise, save money and get fresh air all at the same time.

Did you enjoy biking as a kid? Biking is just as fun as an adult.

Bike to Campus Week

In 2019, UNB Sustainability hosted the first annual Bike to Campus Week, to encourage staff, faculty and students to cycle to campus.

Bike to Campus Week coinsides with the annual Fredericton Bike Week, with various bike-related events around the city such as block parties to guided trail bike rides.

Dust off your bike and pedal towards campus to participate. UNB Sustainability offers you many resources to encourage you to cycle to campus.

Bike to Campus Week

Helping you get on your bike

Tune up your bike and learn about its maintenance at the bike maintenance workshop, at the Kinesiology Building’s covered bike rack. Knowledgable cyclists will assist you during this green event in getting your bike road-ready and show you how to do this yourself.

URec provides those commuting on bikes access to showers during Bike to Campus week. Bring your UCard to The Richard J. CURRIE CENTER front desk to get access to the shower rooms, even if you’re not a URec member, you can freshen up after your bike ride to campus.

You can park your bike on one of 29 bike racks located on UNB’s Fredericton campus. Find the one most convenient for you and lock your bike. UNB Security recommends to use a “U” bike lock and to register your bike online with them to prove ownership.
