What is Bike Oxford?

Bike Oxford is a newly implemented program established to motivate individuals to participate in physical activity. We support those who chose to use bikes to cycle to work and around the campus and community. Joining this program will give participants access to bikes, helmets, locks, and participation in programs offered. Participants can bring their own bikes and still have access to these things if you chose to join Bike Oxford.
