Huskies bike to campus from all over Seattle and beyond. Here is a collection of some of the most popular and major routes from nearby neighborhoods, links to local cycling clubs and information about classes.
Where to get your bike fixed
The ASUW Bike Shop offers a range of bike repair services and there are a variety of off-campus bike shops in the region.
For quick fixes, take advantage of the bike repair stations located around campus. Each station has an air pump and other tools such as tire irons and screwdrivers that bicyclists can use for quick repairs. These stations are located near Gates Law School, HUB, IMA, UW Medical Center (off Pacific St.), inside the UW Tower parking garage, Spokane Lane (behind Kane Hall) and Okanogan Lane (west of Bagley). If you notice that the repair station is missing tools or requires maintenance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to report the issue.
