Bicycle Information

Biking at UD

A number of students and employees take advantage of community bikeways to ride to class or work. Many of Newark’s main arteries have either bike lanes or are marked so motorists know to share the road. The University provides bike racks at many buildings and University shuttle buses are equipped with convenient bike racks.

The University requires that every bicycle operated, parked or stored on campus be registered. Click to register.

All bicycle operators must follow local and state regulations and laws concerning bicycles.

Bicycles must be secured to a bike rack each time they are left unattended on campus for any period of time. Bicycles should not be locked, secured, or otherwise attached to any non-approved bicycle racks such as handrails, fences, trash receptacles, trees, trip rails, or signposts. Bicycles shall not be parked in any other manner that constitutes a safety hazard, or in such a manner as to interfere with the access to facilities as required by the U.S. Americans with Disabilities Act.
