In November 2016, Southern Oregon University was recognized as a silver level Bicycle Friendly University by the League of American Bicyclists.
SOU has a recently revitalized, thriving Bike rental and education program. The Bike Program coordinates twice-quarterly group bike rides and other educational events to encourage the development of a bicycle-friendly campus culture. There are 30 bicycles available to students to rent on a quarterly ($50), weekly ($15), or daily ($5) basis; helmets, locks, and lights are provided as part of the rental. Six additional bicycles are kept on reserve in order to have free bicycles available for students to use on the Bike Program's group bike rides. The Bike Program's bicycle fleet is maintained by a trained student bike mechanic, who also offers weekly "DIY Bike Maintenance" open mechanic hours, where students can drop in to learn how to troubleshoot and fix basic bike maintenance issues.
