Hendrix College recognizes that bicycles are an important and
legitimate means of transportation, provided they are operated with due regard
and concern for the safety of the general public.
In order to provide a safe and efficient means of managing a
large number of bicycles on campus, all bicycles operated by Hendrix College
faculty, staff, and students must be registered with the Department of Public
Hendrix College assumes no responsibility for the care and
protection of any bicycle, attached accessories, or contents at any time.
All bicycles operated and stored on campus must be registered
online through your Campus Web account. Once registration is
completed, you can pick up your permit/decal from the Public Safety Office on
Washington Ave. Deviation from this process may occur for health and safety
reasons. There is no charge to register your bicycle.
In the event of theft of the bicycle, the Hendrix decal will
provide an additional method of identification for use during the
investigation. We encourage bicycle owners to file a Conway Police report if
their bicycle or accessories are stolen, in addition to reporting the theft to
Public Safety. We also recommend checking the Conway Police Recovered Bicycle
Inventory at http://conwaypd.org/index.php/news-information/recovered-bicycle-inventory
The following information is required to register a bicycle:
make, model, color, type, and serial number. [Example: Huffy, Extreme, Red,
Decals must be permanently affixed to the left side of the down
tube, below the seat or to the top side of the top tube of the bicycle. Prior
to application, make sure that area is clean and dry.
