CCA has a strong bicycle culture. Many students, staff, and faculty commute by bicycle. Ample indoor and outdoor bicycle parking accommodations exist on each campus and in or near all CCA residence halls. CCA is a member of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, and offers free urban bicycle workshops annually to the CCA Community.
