Bike Shop

The Campus Recreation Bike Shop's last day to rent bikes is on Friday, April 25th.  All Rentals due back by 5pm on Monday, April 28th.

Rentals and Repairs

The UNC Asheville Bike Shop offers bike rentals and free maintenance to all students, faculty and staff. However, this bike shop was established as a learning shop, so instead of dropping your bike off and paying someone else to fix it, plan on staying and learning to work on it yourself! Students trained in bike maintenance will be on hand to assist you with all of your bicycling maintenance needs. Some services, depending on the amount of damage to the bike and the parts required, will take longer than others and require a nominal fee.

Prevent Bike Theft

  1. Register your bike. Take 10 minutes in the shop to get a bike ID number decal that will be on record with the shop and campus police. Mechanics will also record the manufacturer's ID number from the bike frame. Should your bike ever go missing, this can help authorities in tracking it down and reclaiming it.
  2. Always lock your bike. Ask a mechanic to show you the proper way to lock up your bike.
  3. Report missing bikes.  Contact Campus Police immediatley in Vance Hall or call 828.251.6710.


Call the shop during business hours at 828.232.5178 or email .
