How long can I store my bike?

The bike storage area is intended for short-term personal bike storage only.

Bikes should not be stored overnight in the bike storage facility. If a bike needs to be stored overnight (e.g. if a mechanical problem means the bike can’t be used), please advise us via email: wellness@capilanou.ca.

Any bike left overnight may be impounded and owners subject to your bike lock access being revoked and/or a fine.

Bike parking etiquette and rules

  2. Lock your bike to an unoccupied designated rack space. Bikes weighing over 18 kg (40 lbs.) must use bottom racks.
