November 2016 - Concordia is proud to have received a silver certification from Vélo Quebec's Vélosympathique Certification for our biking facilities on the downtown campus. Check out the list of our facilities below.
As Concordians, we have many of options when it comes to getting to and from the university.
Cycling is a popular way to get to class and work for many Concordians. Cycling is great for your health, traffic reduction and tackling climate change. At Concordia we are privileged to have access to the city's major bike lanes for both campuses. To support the casual to the avid biker we have several resources available to offer.
The Abandoned Bike Procedure has been implemented at Concordia to reduce the amount of abandoned bicycles on campus. The Abandoned, Lost, and Forgotten Movable Bicycle Procedure aims to ensure that bicycle parking spaces are available to active cyclists.
Campus bicycle parking facilities are limited and designed for temporary parking of bicycles in active use, and not for long-term storage. Abandoned bicycles reduce the number of parking spaces available to active cyclists and can cause safety, accessibility, and aesthetic issues.
Any bicycle considered to be an Abandoned Bicycle will be impounded in order to maintain adequate, safe, and accessible bicycle parking. All removed bicycles will remain in storage for a period of 90 days, during which time they may be claimed by their owner. Should a bicycle not be claimed within the 90 days allotted, it will be donated or recycled.
Bicycle sweeps will take place approximately twice a year.

Le Petit Vélo Rouge (LPVR) is a collectively run campus and community bike organization in Montreal. The organization was founded in 2010 with the short-term goal of repairing used bicycles for sale to students at Concordia and across Montreal campuses. Our long term goal of the project is to be a community focused bicycle repair shop at the Loyola campus.
