Biking Infrastructure on Campus


UCI has 20 miles of Class I, II, and III bikeways for traveling to, from, and around campus. These include:

  • Dedicated bike paths
  • Shared use paths
  • Dedicated bike lanes
  • Shared roadways

On restricted access roads, UCI offers cut throughs adjacent to gate arms for convenient bicycle riding on roads with limited vehicular traffic. Be sure to stop and look for traffic.

Detection Loops

UCI Transportation has installed bicycle detection loops to improve riding on campus roadways. These loops are located within the pavement and allow your bike to trigger a green light at the intersection. To activate, place your “tires to the wires” or in the center of the bike stencil, and prepare for the signal to change.
