Getting around town and campus

  • Buying/renting a bicycle 
    Since Davis is such a bike-friendly community, many students purchase or rent a bicycle for use around town. You can rent a bicycle from the Bicycle Barn on the UC Davis campus. Give them a call at: (530) 752-2575. You can also purchase a new bike at one of the many bicycle stores in Davis or purchase a used bicycle from a recycled bike store or through an ad in the local newspaper.
