Drew Bikes Highlight Sustainability at Drew!
As part of the greater goal for a sustainable campus, Drew encourages bicycling as a form of alternative transportation. Drew’s size and terrain make it great for biking!
Drew Bikes is a bike rental program for Drew students administered by the Sustainability Office at Drew. The bikes that are part of this program are labeled ‘Drew University’ on the bike and a bike number. The 20 Drew Bikes are a combination of single-speed cruisers style bicycles that brake by pedaling backwards, and multi-speed bikes that have a handle bar brake system with multiple gears.
For a list of bike racks all over campus, read more about bikes @ Drew.
