NOTE: Please bring bikes through the loading dock on UT Drive

Need a place to work on your bike? Want to learn how to fix bikes? You’ve come to the right place!

The UT bike shop is open to all current students, as well as faculty and staff who have a valid RecSports membership. It’s free to work on your own bike, even if you need help from one of our mechanics. If you’re unsure of how to fix a problem, we would be happy to teach you, free of charge.

We also offer a drop-off service at a rate of $10/hour + parts. Just bring in your bike and tell us what’s wrong with it. Our mechanics will fix your bike and call you when it’s ready.

Bike Rentals

commuter bike

The Outdoor Center rents out over 50 commuter bikes per semester. Approximately half of the bikes are assigned by a lottery system and the remaining bikes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Semester rentals are in high demand. Interested students and eligible faculty and staff should look for announcements on rental sign-up dates from the Outdoor Program near the beginning of a semester. However, rentals may become available throughout the semester, so check back with us at any time of the year! Semester rentals are $40 and include a helmet and a u-lock, as well as free maintenance at the Pedal Wrench.

The Outdoor Center is located in the lower level of TRECS. If you would like to check equipment availability, call (865) 974-9749.
