Bicycles must be registered when brought to campus. To register your bike, complete the Bicycle Registration Form. There is no charge for registering your bicycle. The registration will be valid until graduation or leaving the College.
When registration is completed, please come to Campus Safety to retrieve a decal. The decal must be affixed to the center post of the bicycle frame. Students are encouraged to bring locks for their bikes and to have bikes insured in case of damage, loss or theft. It is important to read Kenyon College's Bicycle Regulations and Ohio Department of Transportation's Cycling Smarter Guide.
Bicycles must be stored in the shelters/bike racks provided or in students' rooms. Bikes are not allowed in hallways, stairwells, residence-hall storage areas. Bicycles found in violation of regulations will be impounded by Campus Safety and you will need to provide proof of ownership to claim it.
On the Monday following Commencement, all bikes must be removed from campus. All bicycles left on campus after that date will be considered abandoned and will be confiscated by the College. Confiscated bikes will be donated, sold or discarded.
Rules for the operation of bicycles on campus coincide with the regulations of the state of Ohio.
There is a wonderful 14-mile bike path that winds through Knox County, going through the Gambier area. Please feel free to check it out at: Kokosing Gap Trail
