Denison University strives to be an exemplary steward of our natural world and a leader in sustainability. We take an intentionally multi-disciplinary approach to sustainability that balances environmental, economic and social responsibility. We believe that our approach to sustainability will support the well being of the college and the global community beyond. Our commitment to sustainability runs deep. Academic research, strategic investments in infrastructure and human resources, student-centered programming, plus community partnerships are central to our efforts. Whether in the classroom, the Licking County community or a country halfway around the globe, Denison students, staff and faculty lead by example. Together, we share a vision of a healthy future where people and the planet thrive.
Need to race to class or work? Want to enjoy a leisurely ride on the T.J. Evans Bike Trail? Members of the Denison community can now check out a bike for free!
Denison's Bike Share program is a student initiative funded by the Hunting Environmental Venture Fund, a grant program created by John R. Hunting '54 to help students implement innovative campus sustainability initiatives.
How It Works
There are 18 bikes housed outside the Curtis Service Center for use in the Bike Share program. Any member of the Denison community can come to Curtis Service Center during operating hours (Mon-Fri, 8:30am-9pm and Sat-Sun, 12pm-9pm) and check out a bike and helmet by signing a Release Form and Usage Policy. Bike users can keep the bike for up to a day, but must return it by 9:00pm each night.
Other bike equipment available for the bikes: bells, lights, and baskets.
Once you sign a release form and it is on record, you will not have to sign one again, making the check-out process easier than ever!
