Overview

Cycle Central is located in the UREC Adventure Center. Shenandoah Bicycle Company (SBC) has partnered with UREC to offer the JMU community the following services right on campus!

Accessing Cycle Central

Drop off your bike for service at the Adventure Center Pick-Up and Drop-Off location near the UREC Loading Dock on the east side of UREC. SBC will be notified that your bike is in need of repair and will get in touch with you within 24 hours. You can contact urec@shenandoahbicycle.com with any questions you have about this process!

Bikes are not permitted through the front main entrance of UREC. If you are driving a vehicle, there is one 15-minute parking spot for pick-up and drop-off only that can be accessed by turning off University Boulevard onto Driver Drive.

Not comfortable on your bike? Set up an appointment with Cycle Central and we will help get you fitted and comfortable on your bike, from minor seat and handlebar adjustments to a complete fitting on your ride. Ask us about riding on and off campus, and how to best interact with vehicles and other riders on the roadway.
