CMC Bike Shop

The CMC Bike Shop is a student run initiative that helps CMC students, staff, and faculty become more mobile! All members of the CMC community are invited to rent bikes for free for a small rental period. Student staff are able to help patrons put together new bikes and fix bikes or longboards free of charge!

If you have a friend visiting for the weekend, your tires are flat, or you need to get those brakes checked before riding down to the Village, come check us out!!

More Information

  • We are located in the basement of Wohlford Hall, on the west side.
  • There are nine student Bike Shop Technicians, with one Bike Shop supervisor.
  • The Bike shop typically opens sometime during the second week of class each semester. It is not open during College breaks.
  • We rent bikes, locks, and helmets to CMC students, faculty, and staff for two days at a time at no charge.
  • Each 5C institution has their own bike shop!
    1. Non-CMC students may have their bikes repaired and pay for parts.
    2. Non-CMC patrons may not rent out bikes.
  • The Bike Shop Techs will fix your bike for free. The Shop only charges money for parts or if the fix goes beyond the Tech’s training.
  • You must pay for parts before your bike is released to you. Cash, check, or student account charge are the only accepted methods of payment.
  • We will assemble new bikes for you free of charge.
  • The Bike Shop may hold a bike auction for bikes abandoned over the summer. An email will be sent out to the CMC Community with more details if it is to take place.
  • To contact the Bike Shop, send an email to BikeShop@cmc.edu
