VCU RamBikes is dedicated to promoting bicycling as a safe, fun, efficient and environmentally friendly transportation alternative for the Virginia Commonwealth University campus community. VCU RamBikes is your campus resource guide for biking enjoyment and safety at VCU.

Although we do not sell any bikes, parts, or accessories; there is a full repair shop for students, faculty or staff to work on their bikes. Bike technicians will be nearby to offer their assistance or do the work for you on light repairs.

VCU RamBikes is here to help you get started and to keep pedaling – for fun, for health, for efficient use of time, for competition, for your community, for the environment, and for your enjoyment.
