Berea College Bike Club


The Berea College Bike Club (BCBC) is an initiative launched strictly for students by the Office of Sustainability in partnership with Public Safety in an effort to increase Berea College student access to affordable alternative transportation.  We also hope the program will encourage students to become lifelong cyclists.

Students can rent bikes for $10 per semester.  Members are also invited to workshops and BCBC biking excursions.

What are the rules?

Members are solely responsible for properly securing bikes to bike racks. Appropriate locks are provided.  In the case of theft, members MUST inform Berea College Public Safety and file a report, and the Berea College Bike Club at as soon as it is stolen.  Recovered bikes will be returned to the members.  If your bike is stolen and not reported, you will be charged a $100 fee.

  • Providing inaccurate information may result in disqualification from the Bike Program.
  • Bikes are rented on a first-come-first-served basis, by order of waitlist and RSVP.
  • Student has complete responsibility for maintaining the bicycle. BCBC shall be held blameless in any dispute and/or litigation.
  • Student takes full responsibility for the bike, its accessories, and proper locking when not in use.
