The Bike Alliance is a group of students, staff, administrators, and faculty who wish to create an environment conducive to cycling at William & Mary.
Promote bicycling as a safe, sustainable, and healthy mode of transportation and recreation for William & Mary and members of the Williamsburg and James City County communities.
Our VisionTo offer classes, programming, tools, and outreach to educate our community about the importance of bicycle safety.
- Engage campus leadership to promote and design bicycle pathways & corridors on campus, increasing roadway capacity and user mobility
- Develop sustainable initiatives that lead to creation of green bicycle parking options & storage facilities
- Develop an inclusive outreach campaign that supports and brings together riders of all types
- To provide bicycle registration, bicycle safety information, to inform cyclists about the laws to obey when riding, and to encourage wearing bike helmets for every ride
Fall 2023 Schedule
We offer several group rides throughout each semester to explore the area surrounding the William & Mary campus. Helmets are always required! If you want to attend a ride, make sure to register so we can plan for extra ride leaders if we need them. Also, make sure to submit the group ride Participant Agreement each semester.
Does your bike need some work? Let us help you fix it! We host Robert Maye, owner and operator of Red Barn Bikes, to assist with most minor maintenance and repairs. You'll learn how to do some maintenance yourself along the way. Basic parts are available, or you can bring your own.
Join the Bike Alliance for a multi-part clinic to become a better cyclist! This is a program for the intermediate cyclist that wants to improve their level of skill and comfort on a bicycle with lessons on basic maintenance, riding in a group, and maneuvering techniques.
