Each rental includes:
Please note that our bikes come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles and are rented on a first-come, first-served basis. We will do our best to get you on the bike of your dreams but we cannot guarantee we'll have it in stock.
* Due to their shorter duration, Spring and Summer semesters are counted together as one Academic Semester.
**Processing Fee is additional to all rental fees and refunded upon return of the bike & lock.
Visit us at one of our distribution events in Lot P near the Connection. We offer at least 1 primary distribution date at the beginning of each semester. Check our events calendar or contact us for specific dates & times. Outside of the primary distribution dates, rentals may be available at the Laker Village Apartment South community center office. Contact the OAC manager for details and availability.
The rental process is a snap! Follow these simple steps:
All payments will be handled directly through your student account. We will not accept cash, credit, or checks for bicycle rentals.
All returns will be accepted at the Laker Village South Community Center Great Room during any of the established dates/ times. Please enter through the double doors and sign-in your bike and lock with the staff.
All renters will be contacted prior to final exam week with instructions regarding dates & times for rental returns.
If you experience a breakdown or your bike develops a mechanical issue that leaves it in less than a satisfactory state, please send an email with the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org: name, date, preferred method of return contact (phone/ email), detailed description of the issue, & current location of the bike
Maintenance issues that are deemed to be due to normal use/ wear will be fixed free of charge as quickly as possible (flat tire, brake adjustments, etc...). Due to the variety of bicycles in the rental inventory, parts for each bike may not be in stock and may take 2-3 business days to obtain. If this is the case, we will gladly loan out a different bike (if available) while yours is being fixed. Renters are responsible for all maintenance costs deemed to be caused by negligence or abuse.
Lost U-Lock Key
Please note that GVSU cannot reproduce the keys to your lock. If you lose all of the keys supplied by the manufacturer, you will also lose your Processing Fee.
