Bike Rental Guidelines

  • Patrons are required to follow the “rules of the road” in accordance with the California DMV. Only Scripps students, faculty, and staff are allowed to check out bikes.
  • If bikes and/or equipment are not returned within the allotted or requested time, individuals may face charges for the item(s) and may lose their bike privileges.
  • Any damage resulting in repairs to the bike or equipment may be charged to the student who signed/checked out the bike.
  • In circumstances where any items have been stolen from the patron’s possession, or not returned to TFH, the patron may be held responsible for and charged the retail price for the equipment replacement.
  • TFH reserves the right to revoke bike loan privileges for any student, staff, or faculty member.

Day Bike Rentals

The TFH Green Bike program provides 10 to 20 bikes that can be loaned to Scripps students, faculty, or staff for 24 hours at a time.

  • Patrons are allowed to check out one bike along with sponsoring one bike for a guest.
  • Bikes are for daily checkout (24-hour basis). Bikes must be returned within 24 hours of checkout.
  • Each participant must wait a full day after returning a bike before renting another.

Semester Loans

Each semester, the TFH Green Bike program raffles off approximately 60 to 80 bikes to the Scripps student body for their use throughout the semester. Those who are randomly selected have the opportunity to come and pick out a suitable bike, lock, and helmet for the remainder of the semester.

Fix It Yourself

The TFH Green Bike program is a teaching-based program that strives to give Scripps students the basic bike maintenance skills necessary to keep their own bike in good condition. The Fix It Yourself program, founded in spring 2015, gives students the opportunity to come learn these skills by working with a technician to fix up a bike that then becomes theirs for the semester. We hope that through the teaching of bike maintenance, students will learn the value of a bike and feel enthusiastic about riding around on a machine that they worked to fix.
