UMass Lowell Students, Faculty and Staff


  • Current, registered Freewheelers participants may host one non-UMass Lowell guest. Guests must sign this Freewheelers Waiver.
  • Current students, faculty and staff should register individually, not as guests.

Check Out & Return

Once you are registered, you can go to any Bike check-out station and request a bike. The staff will give you a key and helmet and then you head to the racks. Racks are typically blue and marked with UMass Lowell Free Wheelers decals just like the decals on the bicycles. Simply match your key number with the appropriate bike number and you can unlock your bike. Be sure to lock your bike securely before returning the keys to any of the checkout stations by the close of operating hours.


Things to keep in mind when locking your bike:
  • The U-Lock should pass through the rear wheel, the frame and lock around the bike rack.
  • Never leave the key in the lock.

When you arrive at your destination, simply lock your bicycle to the designated UMass Lowell Freewheelers bike rack and bring your key into the check-out station.

Ride safely and have fun as you navigate between campuses using sustainable transportation!
