UCI Transportation removes abandoned bikes from the campus and after a 30-day holding period, these bikes are made available for sale at low cost to the campus and the community through the reCycle Fair. The reCycle Fair is held at Lot 90 in North Campus between 11:00 am - 1:00 p.m., at the corner of Campus Drive and Jamboree Road.

Future reCycle Fair dates will be added here when available.

reCycle Fair times and dates are subject to change. Salvaged bicycles and parts can be purchased at a low cost and require repairs such as new inner tubes, cleaning of rust, and tuning.


Bicycle Donation Program

Bikes and bike parts that are not purchased are donated to the Bicycle Donation Program. These bikes are cleaned up and donated to organizations such as Shelter for the Boys and Girls Club, CASA, the Homeless in Midway City, Olive Crest Homes, Services for Abused Children in Santa Ana, Healthy Active Streets, and The Bicycle Tree. You may also donate your bike by dropping it off at the Guest & Event Services office in the Student Center Parking Structure during business hours.


Report Abandoned Bikes

To report abandoned bikes or bikes that are not parked at designated racks, please email biking@uci.edu and include a description of the bike, the location, and a photo.


For more information on these programs, please contact the bicycle coordinator or call (949) 824-7433.
