Salisbury University has a growing population of cyclists and this page is intended as a one-stop resource for everyone from the occasional cyclist to cycling enthusiasts. This page will continue to grow as we get feedback from users about additional content that would be helpful to the cycling community.
SPIN Bikes – As of February 2018, SPIN has placed 100 bikeshare bikes on campus and at University Park, which are accessible to students, faculty, staff and visitors. Users download a free phone app to find and unlock a bike. The rate is $0.50 every half-hour or unlimited 30 minute rides for $14/month (when you sign up with your @.edu email address). Here is a short video showing how it works
Bike Racks on Campus – This drawing was developed by SU Facilities Planning / Capital Projects and lists rack locations and the number of bikes estimated for each rack based on design.
Campus Bike Rack Locations – This aerial image was developed by Dr. Dan Harris and depicts the campus bike rack locations labeled with a bicycle symbol.
Self-Service Bicycle Repair Stations – SU Housing and Sustainability office purchased 4 Dero Fixit Stations for the campus. The stations are located near Manokin bike barn, Maggs Gym, Chester/Choptank bike barn, and Sea Gull Pavilion. The stations include a bike rack, manual air pump, and tools for the most common repairs or adjustments. There is also a QR code which takes smart phone users to a web page with instructions on a variety of repairs for bicycles!
Cycling and Walking Routes – Developed by SU student Joshua Souders of GNAppWorks as a smartphone application, this map illustrates 10 cycling route choices and 9 walking / jogging choices. If users check more than one route, the selected routes will be displayed at the same time. The app will request permission to use your location in order to provide real-time positioning.
Location Finder – A smartphone app developed by Dr. Art Lembo with campus building detail and a pin showing the user’s location. Very helpful in navigating the campus and nearby community!
Bike SBY – Is a group of citizens with a goal of creating a high quality network of safe bike lanes for recreation and travel to school, work and for recreation. The concept for Bike SBY originated with Matt Drew, who developed a phased approach for improving bike paths around Salisbury. Matt and Bike SBY volunteers have worked tirelessly to involve the local community, City of Salisbury, Wicomico County, Salisbury University and State of Maryland in the development of these paths. In the summer of 2012, a section of Bateman Street was modified to become one-way for vehicle traffic and a bike lane was added. This became the first step in the development of the “orange route”. The balance of the orange route was completed in the summer of 2013 and President Dudley-Eshbach participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Bicycle Friendly Merchants – This program was developed by Bike SBY and includes merchants that offer a discount (or other incentive) to cyclists that visit their establishment while riding their bike. They also offer safe, visible and permanent equipment to store and lock a bicycle while there. Click here to see a map of Salisbury cycling routes and the Bicycle friendly merchants.
Sea Gull Century – A nationally acclaimed cycling event, the Sea Gull Century includes two century rides and one metric ride. Sea Gull Century benefits many local non-profits, regional charities, scholarships, and the local economy.
