StoutBikes Program Information

StoutBikes is a bike share program for students of UW-Stout.  Students can check out a bike for an entire school year to travel around campus and in the Menomonie community.

How It Works

Students may rent a bike during the school year (September to May) or during the summer.  Rental cost is $25/yr or $10/summer with a $50 deposit that is refunded upon return of the bike.  The cost is added to your student university billing.  Students should complete the online registration form to participate in the program.  Bikes are limited and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

To engage in this program you must read and consent to the  Liability Release Form linked here and verify that you've done so on the online registration form liked below.
