Semester Bike Rentals

Sheridan Bike Hub is offering a free semester-long bike rental for eligible students. You can apply for either the May – August semester or the September – December semester.

If you are eligible and selected to participate, you will have to pay $100 security deposit to access the bike, lock, key, and lights. The $100 deposit is returned once all the rented items are brought back by the end of the semester. This is offered at both HMC (Mississauga) and Davis (Brampton) Bike Hubs.

We have limited bikes available for the semester bike rentals, so we require you to fill out an application. If no bikes are available, you will be placed on a waitlist if you are eligible. There is no guarantee that you will get a bike.



To be eligible to participate in the semester long rentals, you are required to:

  • Be a full-time student
  • Register to use the rental program (Weekly Rentals webpage)
    • Complete the Quiz (6 mins)
  • Have no outstanding bike fees
  • Be willing to track your riding distance (can use a free Strava app or track distance manually)
  • Bring your bike in twice for check-ins throughout the semester
  • Return the bike by the end of the August or December semester

Once eligible, the steps to securing a bike for the semester:

  1. Fill out the application
  2. Be selected as a participant (you will receive an email)
  3. Rent a bike out (1-week rentals) at least two times to ensure proper fit
  4. Pay the $100 security deposit
  5. Enjoy the bike while keeping track of your distance
  6. Return rented equipment and receive your $100 security deposit back*

*You will not receive a full refund if you lose or damage any items, return the bike late, don’t return the bike, and/ or miss your check-ins. If the bike has not been returned two weeks after the due date and we are unable to reach you, you will lose the $100 deposit. In addition, the replacement value of the bike will be charged to your account. Misuse of the program will result in being banned from accessing future rentals.

Registering to use this program means you accept the Terms & Conditions, understand the liability, and you have completed all the necessary paperwork.

Thank you for your interest, we will be in touch around late May or September depending on when you apply!
