Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I get a bicycle?
Bike-friendly Fort Collins has numerous bikes shops. Students often consider mountain bikes for all weather riding. Consider a visit to CSU Surplus Property to purchase a used bicycle. Remember, all bicycles ridden on campus need to be registered.
For occasional riding, consider the Pace bikeshare program (CSU students and employees use your @colostate.edu email address when registering for 50 percent off a monthly or annual membership). When you’re done, lock your bike to a Pace rack or any publicly available bike rack. Use the promo code “CSU” for a $10 ride credit for new app users.
