Tips on Biking on UP Campus
Tips on Biking on the UP Academic Oval
- Watch out for crazy car and motorcycle drivers invading the bike lane.
- The bike lane is also shared with joggers. Maintain a predictable path and speed, so joggers can anticipate your move.
Bike Parking on Campus
1. Bike racks have been installed at the following locations:
Inside the Academic Oval: kiosk in front of Faculty Center (across the street), Quezon Hall (Administration building), UP Main Library South of Academic Oval: UP Faculty Center, UP Vargas Museum, UP CDC North of Academic Oval: NCTC
Further away from the Academic Oval: HRDO/ISSI, Campus Maintenance Office
See UPD Map for guidance on landmarks.
2. In buildings where there are no bike racks, use your imagination.
