Bicycling is a healthy and a sustainable alternative to driving to campus. It's virtually cost-free and allows closer access to your destination than vehicle parking lots. Cycling to the Carlow University can be a fun, practical, healthy – particularly after climbing up mighty Mount Mercy – and productive way of making exercise a regular part of your life. Make certain to
always wear a helmet
, always use lights when riding at night, and always lock your bike up!
A bicycle rack is the safest place for you to store your bike on campus. For your convenience, these racks are available behind AJ Palumbo Center and in front of Dougherty Hall. Please be aware that bicycle parking regulations are in effect at all times, including evenings, weekends, holidays, vacations, and breaks between terms. Walk your bicycle through congested pedestrian areas, narrow walkways, and ADA ramps.
For the security of your property and courtesy to others, please do not park or store bicycles in residence halls, or against railings, trees, poles, pipes, trash cans, or any other fixed object other than the bicycle racks. When you park your bike, please make sure it is clear of any access ramps or buildings. If the University must move your bicycle, police will remove locks and impound the bike.
