Cycle Learning Center


Bicycle Sales & Repair, Rental, Education, Accessories and Self-Service station

Serving cyclists and commuters on campus and beyond — Everyone is welcome!


The Cycle Learning Center (CLC) is a campus-based service focused on developing healthy and sustainable lifestyles by promoting the use of bicycles and multi-modal transportation options. The CLC, started in 2002, is the university’s centralized source for basic bicycle repair services, instructional clinics, and alternative transportation information. The CLC strives to create a hands-on learning environment that empowers campus users to explore sustainable transportation through educational programming, retail sales, and services.

The CLC is available through a partnership between Campus Recreation and Transportation and Parking Services. CLC programs and services provide an excellent opportunity for the collaborative partners to combine efforts towards the complementary goals of providing environmentally sustainable transportation options and promoting an active and healthy campus community.


From flat tire repairs to complete tune-ups, the CLC offers a complete range of service options to accommodate the needs of all campus users.  Specialty repairs, such as suspension fork rebuilds and drivetrain upgrades are feasible through our extensive catalog of special order parts.


The Cycle Learning Center is a dealer for Fuji, Surly and Yuba.  Used bike sales are conducted through the Recycle Bike program that restores quality used bikes to sell at student rates.  Our rental/demo fleet are put on sale at periods throughout the year.


Our fleet of campus cruisers and mountain bikes are available at deep discounts to make riding bikes on campus the obvious choice!  Our mountain bikes are now for sale — stop by to check them out!


The CLC strives to create a hands-on learning environment that empowers campus users to explore personal health and fitness and sustainable transportation options through educational programming and support services. Looking to learn the basics or try a repair on your own?  We can answer questions and provide guidance, and even offer facilitated service for $10 an hour.  Set up an appointment or just drop in!  Check out the programs being offered.


Our self-service station is open to anyone who needs a repair stand, basic tools, chain lube, degreaser and rags.  No fee required and assistance is available from the CLC mechanics.  What a deal!


The CLC is located in the Lincoln Avenue Parking garage across from the Student Union and adjacent to the Student Recreation Center.
