Bicycling and Walking

Bicycle Fix-It Stations
WCU has two bicycle fix-it stations, fully equipped for basic bike repairs and to add air to tires. They’re located at the South Campus Clubhouse (within the South Campus Apts. complex) and on the Residential Quad outside University Hall on North Campus.
Urban Safe Cycling Workshops
The Office of Sustainability, in collaboration with the Division of University Affairs and Professor Michael Burns (English), is supporting the development of a series of Urban Safe Cycling workshops for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters. Check back for more details.
Weather Protected Bicycle Racks
The university has four weather protected bicycle racks distributed across campus to keep your ride out of the elements. They are located at Sykes Student Union, in the Student Rec Center parking garage, at Tyson Hall, and in the Matlack Street Parking Lot Garage. We hope to install more weather protected racks in the coming months. Check back here for updates and contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with recommendations for more locations.
Commuting on foot is a great way to get from place to place on campus and to get some fresh air and exercise too. To promote walking and healthier lifestyles, Chester County has created the WalkWorks ChesCo initiative with a goal of participants taking 5 billion steps for 2018. Help them reach their goal by signing up on the WalkWorks Chesco website and tracking your steps. You can represent West Chester in friendly countywide competitions, view routes and join walking groups. West Chester is currently leading the way in total steps in the County! #walkworks
