Bike Shop

Rental & Repairs

The UNC Asheville Bike Shop offers bike rentals and free maintenance to all students, faculty, and staff. As an educational shop, expect to stay with your bike during the repair. Our mission is to teach you the skills and know-how to perform your own maintenance in the future. Trained student bike mechanics will be on-hand to assist you with all of your bicycling maintenance needs. Some services, depending on the complexity of the maintenance request and/or if new parts are required, may take longer or require a nominal fee.

Rental Options

The bike shop has a rental fleet of over 35 bikes, both mountain bikes and commuter bikes. Each bike rental comes with a lock and helmet and bikes can be rented for up to a week at a time. Rentals are available to all UNC Asheville students, faculty and staff with OneCards. The best part is that commuter bikes are free for students! Mountain bike rentals are very affordable every day, but on Mountain Bike Mondays, rentals are free!
