Spring 2023 Bike Retrieval Dates: To Be Announced

To help promote the use of bicycles as an alternative form of transportation, Luther offers free winter storage for bicycles. Bicycle storage is free for Luther students and staff.

Bicycles will be placed in secure, dry storage in the Ashmore-Jewell Barn (the red barn next to Baker Village.) The bikes will be locked together and placed in storage by college personnel. These will be the only two days that we will accept bikes for winter storage. If you have a conflict, please find someone else to bring your bike to storage. The barn will not be opened outside of these two times for security reasons.

All bikes must be registered to be put into storage. Registering your bike is free and easy! Stop by the Welcome Desk in the Student Union and they will get you set up. Registering a bike puts its serial number into a national database, making it easier to find stolen bikes.

The week after Winter Bike Storage, all temporary bike racks will be removed from campus. Bikes that remain on permanent racks may still be subject to removal if Facilities determines that it is blocking snow plowing paths. 

To maintain the quality of your bike and to prevent excess fines, we encourage students, faculty and staff to store bikes in the barn or to take them home over Thanksgiving Break.  

If you have questions, please email Sustainability.
