Blog 2017Bike Recycling Day is back and set for Sunday, November 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the rooftop of Parking Structure 8! As always, you will have the opportunity to receive used bikes or used bike parts for FREE.

For those new to UCLA, Bike Recycling Day is our popular annual event where UCLA Transportation gives abandoned bikes and bike parts (as-is) to members of the UCLA community.

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 will reduce chaos and tent pitching, while helping to create an equal opportunity at cashing in on a free ride! The lottery will close on Tuesday, October 31 at 9 a.m.

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 ONE bike (or parts that total one bike) per person.
  • Bikes will be offered in ascending order starting promptly at 10 a.m. 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.
