Bike To Campus

Bike to UNMUNM is a Bicycle Friendly University, recently recognized with a Bronze level Bicycle Friendly University (BFU) award from the League of American Bicyclists, joining 100 other visionary colleges and universities from across the county. There are currently 37 BFUs in the country. As a BFU, UNM has access to a variety of free tools and technical assistance from the League to become even more bicycle-friendly. When colleges and universities invest in bicycling, great things happen including a decreased carbon footprint, reduced healthcare costs, community connectedness and a fun and healthy campus culture. To learn more about the free BFU program, please visit the League of American Bicyclists

All ABQ RIDE buses have bicycle racks so you can bike to your bus stop, ride the bus here, and bike where you need to be on campus.

Bike Racks & Lockers

We have many free-to-use bike racks on campus. For added security, there are also seventy (70) bike lockers placed throughout Main and North campuses and are available to rent for $48 for a year.
