Pedal Club

Any faculty, student or staff member who lives off campus and does not hold a limited or annual parking permit may join the Pedal Club.

Pedal Club members must:

  • Commit to cycling for most of your commutes to UC San Diego
  • Register your bicycle with the state of California and maintain a valid registration sticker


  • Maintenance discount: Get a 10% discount on accessories, parts and labor at UCSD Bike & Skate.
  • Free shower access (without a recreation card): Bring your valid UC San Diego ID with current Pedal Club Access Sticker (available from Commute Solutions) to the main gym or Canyonview pool (RIMAC not included) and identify yourself as a Pedal Club member. Lockers are available for daily rental.
  • Park free when necessary: Receive a complimentary 10 Day permit each quarter. (First-year students are not eligible to receive these parking permits.)
  • Emergency rides home: Register in advance for Guaranteed Ride Home, a SANDAG program that provides rides in case of illness, unscheduled overtime, or family emergencies. Registered users, dial 511 when you need a ride.
  • Drive shared vehicles: Pay no Zipcar application fee and receive rental credits (when you meet UCSD eligibility requirements).
