The Fermilab’s new Bike Share program begins today!

Bicycles can be rented for up to two hours and can be used to commute between buildings, travel to and from the Village, or for a leisurely ride to see the baby bison.

Here is what you need to know:

  • The Fermilab Bike Share Program is 100 percent free!
  • You must register as a bicycle rider in advanced. Visit get-connected.fnal.gov/bikeshare or any Bike Share rack to register as a rider.
  • Fermilab Bike Share is for all current Fermilab badge holders. You must be a current badge holder to check out a bicycle.
  • You must wear a helmet while riding Bike Share bicycles (or you will get a ticket!). If you don’t own a helmet you can pick one up for $10 from the Badging Office. The Badging Office is on the ground floor of Wilson Hall.

Bike Share racks are located at:

  • Wilson Hall (on west side)
  • Users Center
  • Aspen East (near the Housing Office)
  • Fermilab Gym
  • Accelerator Division
