Along with registration, a simple sticker will be provided to place on the bicycle. The sticker is intended as a theft deterrent. Would-be thieves will realize that bicycles with registration stickers will be easier to track and more difficult to sell.

 

Registration is strongly encouraged. Its free, its quick and it protects your property. For bike registration questions email bike@baylor.edu


Bicycle Safety:
When you ride a bicycle on a roadway within the Baylor University campus, you are a driver. You must follow state laws, give signals, obey stop signs and yield right of way-just as car drivers do. Laws and regulations are designed for the safety of cyclists.

All bicyclists must operate under Texas Motor Vehicle Laws, including stopping at stop signs and red lights, yielding to pedestrians in crosswalks, displaying proper illumination, and riding with the traffic flow.

Persons operating bicycles and other non-motorized devices on campus shall practice courteous, defensive riding, giving right-of-way to pedestrians, traveling at safe speeds, and having their vehicles under control at all times.


Securing your Bicycle:
Bicycle racks are provided outside of each residence hall and major academic buildings. All bicycles on campus must be secured to a bicycle rack. Bicycles secured to anything other than a bicycle rack are considered improperly secured and may be fined, immobilized or impounded.

U-shaped locks are recommended for the security of your bicycle.

Bicycles may also be stored in your room with the agreement of all roommates.


Bicycle Repairs:
The Baylor Outdoor Adventure Bike Shop, located at the Marina, helps students learn more about their bike and how to repair it. Students are allowed to watch and even participate while the mechanic teaches you to work on your bike.

Visit their web page for more information: The Bike Shop at the Marina


Abandoned Bicycles:
Any bicycle that is determined to be abandoned or improperly parked may be immobilized or impounded.
