UNH Transportation Services has the program for you! 

Craving to feel the sunshine on your face? Do you miss the warm breeze on your skin as you peddle down a dirt path? Spring is just around the corner; the snow will melt, and the air will warm up, so take advantage of a great program called Cat Cycles, which is provided by UNH Transportation Services. This program allows you to sign out a bike for up to a week to do with as you please. It's a fun way to get some exercise, which is recommended by the American Heart Association.

Staff, students, and faculty... 

of the University of New Hampshire are eligible to sign out a bike at no cost to them. Only if the bike is damaged during the rental will the customer have to pay. Once you rent the bike, you can take it wherever you please, on or off campus.

College Woods is a great place for a bike ride, as well as right up through Main St. This is a great and easy program for people who want to enjoy the fresh air and break out of those winter blues.

To sign up for a Cat Cycle, just go to the UNH Visitor Information Center on Mast Road. It’s as easy as bringing your student or employee ID and filling out a registration form. For more information, please visit their website
