Bike Center

The Bike Center is the heart of EPFL’s cycling movement: a point of sale for new and second-hand bikes, cycling gear at reduced prices, as well as repairs at cost.
Point Vélo EPFL

To complement the services offered to cyclists, a wash station and two self-repair stations in open access are also available (west side). The Bike Center welcomes you at Avenue Piccard. The building results from the “Sustainable is beautiful” student project, organized by the Laboratory of Architecture and Sustainable Technologies (LAST), with the support of the Real Estate and Infrastructures Department (DII), EPFL Sustainable Campus, the EPFL Student Foundation (FEE) and SIA Vaud.
