The Hokie Bike Hub and our offices will be re-opening to the public on August 3.  You may still email us for questions at any time.  For immediate bike repairs, visit one of the five Fix-it Stations on campus or one of the local bike shops. 

The Alternative Transportation Department has implemented a summer bike storage option for students. To purchase the Summer Bike Storage permit for $20, log onto Virginia Tech’s parking permit portal here: 

 https://virginiatech.t2hosted.com/Account/Portal.

You may then email gettingaround@vt.edu to schedule a time to drop off your bike at the Hokie Bike Hub for secure storage.

All bikes left on campus after Sunday, June 21 will be considered abandoned, and Parking Services will impound them during the summer.  Please make plans to remove your bike from campus to avoid paying $30 to retreive it.

Check out these short videos by The League of American Bicyclists to help you get started before your next ride.
