Bicycles are permitted on JCCC campuses and do not need to be registered. Bicycles must be placed in designated bicycle racks, and it is recommended that the owner secure the bike with a lock. Bikes may not be placed at rails, lamp posts, trees or inside of buildings. Bicycles left on campus for a period of 30 days or longer will be considered abandoned and will be removed and disposed of in accordance with the JCCC Police Department procedures for lost and found property.
