Hassle-free parking, breathtaking views, and getting around campus faster, safer, and easier are just a few perks of riding. It's good for you and the planet, too!

Stay in the know on all bike buzz.

No bike? No worries! Students can borrow a bike from the Bike Library for free. Or if you’ve been thinking about an e-bike, sign up for our newsletter to stay in the know!

Say “bye-bye” to parking tickets and permits! There are bike racks at most major campus buildings where you can park for free, or for only $0.05 per hour, you can use one of the 36 secure bike lockers on campus. 

We have LOADS of information for cyclists whether you’re commuting for work or riding between classes on campus. Find out how to license your bike, what the best routes are on campus and around town, or get a ride home if there’s an emergency. We’ve got you, Slugs!  

UCSC TAPS and Ecology Action have teamed up to keep you riding all quarter long.

Slug Impact

If you made the choice to ride only 1x per week, you'd be making this level of impact every quarter. SRSLY.*

Drop those GHGs

Biking is not only great for you, it’s great for the environment! You can track your greenhouse gas emission (GHGs) reduction and earn sweet incentives for riding through Go Santa Cruz County. Bonus: Cycling also helps reduce traffic on campus. It's a win-win-win!

         This project is made possible through funding from the California Active Transportation Program, SB1 - The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.
