Are you wondering about biking opportunities and resources that exist on the UWSP campus and in the Stevens Point Community? Well you’ve come to the right place.
Stevens Point in 2011 was ranked higher than any other Wisconsin city in the Bicycle Federations Wisconsin Bicycling Benchmarking Report for commuting by bike. Overall, Wisconsin ranks higher than the national average for percentage of trips made by bicycle.

Traveling by bike not only provides you great health benefits, but it helps the environment and your wallet too! There is a bike repair and air pump station on campus at the DUC. For more involved repairs there are several bike shops in the area who can assist you: Point Area Bicycle Service, Campus Cycle & Sport Shop, Trek Bike Store and the Hostel Shoppe.
The UW-Stevens Point Comprehensive Campus Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan was adopted in the spring of 2019 furthering our campuses efforts towards sustainability. The plan outlines the existing resources available to bicyclists and pedestrians and provides a tiered plan for implementing new initiatives to improve the resources available to users of the UWSP campus. The plan was written by the Campus Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Task Force who was formed in 2016 to forge the future of UWSP by conducting research and evaluating our campus to provide improvements for the future. UWSP is in the beginning stages of implementing these new recommendations and will continue to do so into the future.
