Orange Bike Program Rules and Regulations
Before being issued a key to the bikes one must first fill out the necessary paperwork and should read the regulation and responsibility forms. Bicyclists are subject to all laws and ordinances regulating the movement of motor vehicle traffic. Stop signs and one-way signs must be obeyed in addition to any other signs.
- All bikes must be locked at all times. They must be parked in a bicycle rack when space is available. Failure to lock a bicycle or to park in an available rack constitutes a violation and is subject to a penalty and/or impoundment. Any bicycle locked to a handicap ramp, sign post, meter post, tree, or any non-rack object constitutes a violation and is subject to penalty and/or impoundment. Bicycles cannot be stored or parked in rooms, halls, or porches.
- Although city ordinances prohibit riding bicycles on some sidewalks, bicycles may be ridden on campus sidewalks. However, riders must yield the right of way to pedestrians. All persons riding bicycles on a sidewalk must sound a warning when approaching a pedestrian.
- Bicycles must be walked through all breezeways. The breezeway at Hanna/University Hall and University/Moseley are especially high traffic areas.
- Do NOT ride a bicycle after consuming alcoholic beverages. Drinking and riding is against the law. Not only will you face legal charges, but your orange bike membership will be revoked.
