BEAST Bike Share Program
About the program:
The Wellness Center has partnered with BEAST (Bike Enthusiasts At St. Thomas) to provide bike rentals to current UST students. Anyone in need of a bike is able to borrow one with a lock and helmet for 7 days, free of charge, through The Bike Share Program. The bike share is open now!!
A wide variety of bikes are available for rental including: road bikes, single speeds, cruisers, mountain bikes, and hybrids. For pictures of the bikes visit the Bike Share Website.
Checking out and Returning a bike:
All of our bikes are numbered and located in the racks in front of Morrison Hall. Take a minute to look over the available bikes, note the number of the bike you'd like to rent, and bring that number along with your current UST Student ID card to the Wellness Center.
Bikes can only be returned during open Wellness Center hours:
Summer hours: Tuesday-Thursday 9am-3pm
Please call before coming to rent a bike (651) 962-6128
