Your go-to spot on campus for all your biking needs
The RecWell Bike Shop is a student-powered bike shop providing free bike repair and education for all UMD students, faculty, and staff. The shop also rents commuter and mountain bikes, hosts bike maintenance classes and group rides, and has a limited inventory of bike parts and safety equipment for sale.
The RecWell Bike Shop is located in Cole #0249. Enter Cole through the entrance on the east side of building at the top of Union Lane Parking Garage.
In an attempt to minimize the potential spread of COVID-19, formal recreation is being suspended while the university is virtual. As a result, the RecWell Bike Shop will be closed through April 12.
|Monday - Friday||Closed|
|Saturday - Sunday||Closed|
Walk-in service is available for all UMD students, faculty, and staff. Student mechanics will work with you to do basic repair and maintenance on your bike; they will not work on your bike for you. All service is free, but you must be present and involved in the process.
Some advanced or exceedingly time-consuming repairs may be beyond the scope of what our student mechanics are trained to do. In these cases, you may be referred to a local, professional bike shop.
