HOW IT WORKS

Students will be able to sign up for Gator Gears through our online rental application during sales periods. Participants will receive their Gator Gears bicycle, a free bike helmet, a combination U-lock and free labor on repairs for the duration of the rental period.

OUR BICYCLES

Gator Gears bicycles are custom-made, high-quality 3-speed cruiser models and come outfitted with front and rear fenders, a front basket and a rear rack.

Bicycles are available in multiple sizes and are assigned to participants by inseam measurement and height to provide a properly fit bicycle.

All Gator Gears bikes are issued with a combination U-lock and a free helmet (locks must be returned, helmets are yours to keep).

FREE REPAIRS

Participants will receive free labor on all repairs by our trained staff mechanics (participants will only be responsible for the cost of parts). Repairs are conducted on an appointment basis using a mobile repair station which can meet the participant at any location on campus for additional convenience. For more information or to schedule your repair appointment, please visit https://bikes.ufl.edu/gg-repairs/

HOW TO RECEIVE YOUR BICYCLE

Gator Gears participants will be contacted via email before the beginning of their rental semester with information on the pick-up process. Gator Gears bikes are distributed and collected at Parking Garage 14 on Gale Lemerand Dr.
