Keep your bike safe in UBC’s free secured bike cages

Be aware though, they ask for up to five business days for your UBC student/staff card to activate after you’ve submitted the form. File Sasha Honcharova

Although there are many bike parking spots, UBC also offers ten bike cage locations across campus if you’re looking for a more secure place to keep your bike throughout the day.

These covered bike racks are enclosed, and they require a key card for access as an increased security measure to replace last year’s keypads. Most locations also feature day-use lockers for bike-related accessories such as helmets, shoes or jackets.

Additionally, the Chemistry Building location has a repair stand with air pumps and other emergency bike tools. This service is free and available to all students and staff, but registration through the Bike Co-op website is required.

Be aware though, they ask for up to five business days for your UBC student/staff card to activate after you’ve submitted the form.
