Bike Share

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

Due to the nature of the Bike Share program, the Bikes are not sanitized between participant use and we cannot guarantee that they are clean. We suggest that you take adequate protective measures to ensure your safety. When using the Bike Share bicycles, the use of anti-bacterial wipes and hand sanitizer can provide some personal protection for you. You should clean areas of rider contact, (i.e., handle grips, seat, gear changers, and basket areas) This is a good extra step prior to beginning your ride.

Consider wearing gloves while riding your bike. Always wash your hands after riding your bike. Avoid sharing helmets.

The Fermilab Bike Share is easy to join and free to use. It is available  to all Employees and Users/Affiliates holding a current Fermilab Badge.

Fermilab’s Bike Share bicycles are useful for going from building to building on Fermilab property. They are also a nice way to enjoy some of the surrounding beauty of the Fermilab site and get some light exercise as well.

New Recreation Waiver Requirement

You will need to complete the Recreation waiver in FermiWorks in order to be approved for the Bike Share program membership. If you have already done this for other Recreation activities, you are all set!

New Bike Share Membership

This season there is a new bike share membership called “Fermilab 2022”. If you were a member of the original “Fermilab” membership, you will notice that your membership has been canceled. You will need to join the new “Fermilab 2022” membership and be approved before you are able to ride the bikes.
