Biking at Tufts Cycling
Take a Ride with
Tufts Bikes
Tufts Bikes is a student-run bike share
with a fleet of 30 bicycles available for
FREE rental through the Tisch Library
circulation desk. All bikes are equipped
with front and rear lights for your safety,
and helmets are available for checkout.
Bikes are located outside of Tisch Library and
on the Upper Campus Center Patio. Bikes can be checked
out by all students, faculty and staff with a current ID
who are over 18.
How To Use The Bike Share
1. Check availability on the Tisch Library website.
2. Go to Tisch circulation, sign a waiver (first time
borrower) and check out a key and helmet
(encouraged).
3. Bikes may be kept for up to 8 hours or
overnight if you check it out late in the day.
4. When returning your bike, you MUST return the
key to the circulation desk. Do NOT put keys in
the drop box.
5. Late fines are $1/hour. You will be held
responsible for any damages (excluding wearand-tear) incurred while the bike is checked out
in your name.
HAVE YOUR OWN BIKE?
Tufts Bikes has a fully equipped bike
repair shop located in the Crafts Center
in the basement of Lewis Hall (check the
map on the reverse side for this icon).
Visit TuftsBikes.com for open shop hours
and to hear about opportunities for mechanics
classes and more. Bring in your bike during open
shop hours, and a Tufts Bikes mechanic will help fix
it - or borrow tools to do your own repairs.
Cycling
Basics
Share the Road. Respect other cyclists, cars,
and pedestrians. Bikes must follow the
same road rules as vehicles, including
yielding to pedestrians. Don’t ride on the
sidewalk.
Biking
at Tufts
Look and Signal. Use a bell or
voice to indicate intentions
to pass. Use visible hand
signals before turns or when
merging with car trafficalways look behind to see if
it is clear. Beware of parked
cars opening their doors.
Be Predictable. Travel in a straight line unless
you are avoiding hazards or passing.
Avoid passing motor vehicles on the
right – they’re not expecting you! Obey all
stop signs and traffic lights. Be cautious
at intersections – watch for crossing
pedestrians and cars turning through
your path. When approaching a crosswalk,
dismount and walk your bike across the
crosswalk.
Be Safe. Wear a helmet. The front of the
helmet should be level and two-fingers
width above your eyebrows. Follow the
“ABC Quick Bike Check” before you start
your ride: make sure you have enough
Air in your tires and your Brakes, Chain,
Crank, and Quick releases are all working
properly.
Be Visible. Use front and back lights at night
– they’re required by law! Wear bright
colors and reflective gear when possible.
