$20 Long Term Student Rentals

Limited to Current UAF Students. For Staff/Faculty/Alumni, Check the Short Term and Buy-In Sections Below.

The majority of our fleet is dedicated to keeping students on bikes for a limited cost. We loan them out for 3 months at a time, but require that you come in every 4 weeks for a checkup; we'll show you how to tune up your bike. If you are interested in one of these bikes, here's what you need to do:

  • Check this page every Monday to see if we have a bike in your size.
  • Come in during our office hours any Tuesday. Make sure to get there early as bikes are rented on a first come first serve basis. 
  • Bring your polar express card and helmet; if you don't own a helmet you can buy one for $35.
  • Be prepared to pay a $20 rental fee (through credit, debit, check, or cash)

Bikes will not be held for people who do not have all the required materials (polar express card, helmet and a means of making the deposit and rental fee).

$100 Buy-In Option for UAF Affiliates

Limited to UAF Staff, Alumni, Faculty and Family Members

UAF affiliates may pay an annual user fee of $100 to have access to all program services, including long-term rentals. After this $100 fee they still pay normal user fees (e.g. the $20 fee for long-term checkout). Students do not fall under this option because they have already paid the SIREN fee as part of their tuition.
