VikeBikes

Our goal is simple. Make bike commuting easy and affordable.

The VikeBike Program

With the help of some visionary PSU students, we've created the VikeBike program to help break down one of the most costly barriers to cycling: buying a bike. By refurbishing bikes abandoned on campus, we've created a commute-ready fleet of VikeBikes that can be rented for up to 3 academic terms.

The cost to check out a VikeBike is just $45 per term, which can be charged to your PSU student account.

We've also established a need-based program and for those students who qualify the rental is FREE. If you have questions about this, please contact vikebike@pdx.edu for more details.

As a user of the program, you'll receive the following:

  • Fully refurbished commuter bicycle with full-length fenders and a rack or basket
  • Set of front and rear lights
  • U-lock with mounting bracket attached to the bike frame
  • Membership to the PSU Bike Hub
  • Indoor bike garage pass
  • You'll also receive a quality bike helmet that is yours to keep.

How to Sign-Up

  1. Be a PSU student
  2. Take our online VikeBike Orientation
NOTE: There is a limited supply of bikes for this program, so don't delay. VikeBikes are distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Once all the bikes have been rented, we'll place your name on a wait list and get back to you as soon as one becomes available.

Supporting VikeBikes

We would be happy to take donated bicycles of any style and size! If you have an old bike that's collecting dust, bring it in to us and we'll make sure it gets put to good use.
