Abandoned bicycles

Bike Roundup

The Bicycle Round-Up is an annual collection of abandoned bicycles on campus. 

During the Bicycle Round-Up, all abandoned bikes on the San Marcos campus are removed from racks and impounded.   A bicycle is considered abandoned if it is parked for more than a week in the same place on campus without moving. Bicycles may not be stored on campus over the summer. All bicycles attached to railings, signage, or landscaping will be impounded.

Registered bikes which are abandoned will also be collected.  If a lock is present it will be cut.  All bicycles will be held for 120 days after which they will be "re-cycled" by the Bike Cave staff.  Proof of ownership or R.ID.E Registration will be required to retrieve a bicycle after it is impounded.
