History of City Cycles

Since the program was started in 2004 by two students, Andrew Hall and Adam Baratz, it has flourished and is one of the most popular services of the Students’ Association.

City Cycles is the University of Rochester’s free bicycle lending program. Sponsored by the Students’ Association, City Cycles aims to promote bicycling as an attractive and sustainable mode of transportation for the University of Rochester community. The program accomplishes this goal by providing high-quality cycling equipment and services and by encouraging off-campus exploration and experiences.
