Description: Bicycle Repair Station at Ramsey Student Center  Katie Bridges, a 4th year Economics / Sociology major from Lawrenceville, Georgia, fills up the tires and adjusts the seat on her bicycle at the bicycle repair station at the Ramsey Center. Caption: The University of Georgia encourages and supports the use of alternate forms of transportation on campus through several departments, including parking services, campus transit, the office of sustainability and the Odum School of Ecology. Biking is just one of the alternative transit methods available that is not only environmentally friendly, but also a healthier way of travel. These alternative transit methods reduce greenhouse gas missions, conserve natural resources, and lessen general dependency on automobiles.

Bike Shops

There are four local bike shops that offer repair and maintenance service in Athens: Ben's Bikes, Georgia Cycle Sport, The Hub, and Sunshine Cycles. Most local shops offer free annual tune-ups on bikes that were purchased there. 

FixIt Stations

There are four Fixit self-service bike repair stations on campus, located at the Miller Learning Center, the Ramsey Center, The Main Library, and Myers Quad. Refer to the UGA Mobile App map for exact locations. Scan the QR code on the repair stations with your smart phone to see repair instructions.

On-Campus Repairs

The UGA Campus Bike Co-op  is a student-run organization that offers bike repair sessions and educational workshops regularly on campus. Operation Safe Drive is a one-day car and bike safety-check service offered to members of the campus community by UGA Transportation and Parking prior to Thanksgiving Break. 

BikeAthens

The BikeAthens Bike Recycling Program is a volunteer organization that repairs bikes to donate to members of the community who cannot afford transportation to get to work or school. While helping the community, volunteers learn basic and advanced bike repair and maintenance skills that they can later apply to their own bike. The shop also offers Fix Your Own Bike sessions.
