Oct. 31: Deadline to register to win a free bike on Bike Recycling Day


Bike Recycling Day, the popular annual event where UCLA Transportation gives abandoned bikes and bike parts (as-is) to members of the UCLA community, is back and set for Sunday, Nov. 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the roof of Parking Structure 8. 

Some of the bikes may need a light tune-up and others are stripped down to their frame. Recycled bike frames offer an excellent opportunity for those interested in building their own bike from the ground up or to replace a broken part on their own bike.

Participation is based on a random lottery being held by UCLA Transportation. The registration process is intended to reduce chaos and help create an equal opportunity at cashing in on a free ride. The lottery will close on Tuesday, Oct. 31 at 9 a.m. Register for the lottery here.

Eligibility guidelines:

  • Only UCLA students, staff and faculty members with BruinCards may participate. You must display your BruinCard and lottery ticket number to claim a bike.
  • Lottery numbers will be distributed via email on Tuesday, Oct. 31.
  • Limit is one bike (or parts that total one bike) per person.
  • Bikes will be offered in ascending order starting promptly at 10 a.m. at structure 8. If you are not present when your number is called you will be passed.

Bike technicians from the UCLA Bike Shop will be on-site to answer your questions regarding your new find.
