6.1: Cycling on Campus

Cyclists are subject to the same rules of the road as motorists and must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians at all times.  Cyclists are encouraged to wear protective gear and must use appropriate lighting and/or reflective equipment when riding at night.  Cyclists ride at their own risk and may be held responsible for recklessness and/or injuries to others.  DU is not responsible for injuries suffered while cycling or injuries caused by cyclists. 

6.2: Bicycle Registration

The Department of Campus Safety encourages riders to register their bikes. You may register your bike at the Main Campus WID. Unregistered bikes may be subject to removal after the academic year or if the University believes that they may be abandoned.  

6.3: Bicycle Storage

Bicycles may not be stored in hallways or left unattended in such a manner as to constitute a hazard to other persons. The use of an appropriate bicycle lock is recommended to
reduce the possibility of theft. Bikes must be secured at proper bicycle rack locations (1st Floor of the Garage, behind Mazzucheli Hall, Outside of the Commons, or South of Fine Arts) and NOT on signage posts, benches, stairwells, or any undesignated location.
