See the Recreation section of this guide for information about bike maps, registration, rentals, and other details.
Bicyclists must follow the same laws as motorized vehicles when riding on the street, including riding with the direction of traffic, coming to complete stops at all stop signs and red lights, and using a headlight and rear reflector before sunrise and after sunset. When riding on the sidewalk, bicyclists must yield to pedestrians and have and use an audible signal device such as a horn or bell to warn pedestrians of their presence. All fixed-route AATA buses have exterior bike racks that accommodate 2 bikes at no extra charge.
The getDowntown program (see Commuting Alternatives, below) rents bike lockers at 7 downtown locations for $60/year.
The U-M's new Blue Bike program offers daily, weekend, and semester rentals for U-M students, faculty, and staff. Rates begin at $5 for a daily rental, $11 for the weekend and $75 for the semester.
