The UCLA Bike Shop also has Do-It-Yourself Workshop availability established as a partnership between UCLA Recreation and UCLA Transportation to encourage transportation by bicycle. We provide tools, a workspace, and resources for UCLA students and staff to make their own repairs. Our onsite mechanics are available to teach you, guide you, and offer you advice on repair strategy and technique. However, please note that your repairs are your own and that you bear sole responsibility for them. Parts not included in the hourly workshop price. We have a fully stocked shop and occasionally have used parts when they are available.
Book an Appointment:
To use the UCLA Bike Shop, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment. There is a limit of 2 appointments per day and daily limit of one-hour per user for the Do-It-Yourself Workshop.

Public workstations are located in many places around campus, for your convenience. Most of them have a workstand to suspend your bike in the air, a pump to inflate your tires, and a small selection of tools for repairs.
BikeLink cards are available to purchase at the UCLA Bike Shop. For more information about this secure bike parking service, please visit UCLA Transportation’s Bicycle Resources page and open the “BikeLink Lockers” drop-down tab.
Routes for Rides
We often get questions from aspiring and active bicyclists about how to ride to campus from various parts of the city. In response to these inquiries, we've mapped dozens of routes that we've found useful over the years:
You may also plan your route to campus using tools like Google Maps'Bicycling-Directions (click "Get Directions," then click on the bike icon).
Also, we invite you to request custom routes for your particular commute:
As demonstrated by UCLA's Gold designation in the Bicycle-Friendly University program, UCLA is committed to supporting your bicycle-commuting endeavors.
Bikes for All is an inspirational video filmed by a UCLA student. Bike-U-mentary, produced by UCLA Transportation, documents two bicycle-commutes to campus. Sharing the road can be challenging when everyone's in a hurry, so Watch for Bruins.
Most thefts can be deterred by securing the bicycle frame with a U-lock to approved parking-infrastructure (e.g., a bicycle rack). We recommend this humorous video about (in)effective locking produced by BikeUCLA Films, The Bike Bandit.
The League of American Bicyclists recommends the following guidelines for a smooth commute: 1) Follow the law; 2) Be predictable; 3) Be conspicuous; 4) Think ahead; 5) Ride ready; 6) Keep your cool. These videos about how to ride on the road provide guidance, too; for more information, we recommend our Smart-Cycling Classes.
