Rock the BikeThe UNM Health Sciences campus has places where you can squeeze in some exercise time and recharge your mobile device. Rock the Bike recharging stations are equipped with adjustable stationary bikes that have workspace and chargers for up to eight phones.

The stationary bikes are simple to use—just hop on and pedal hard enough to keep the pedometer in the green. Please remember to bring your own charging cable.

If you see that someone else is waiting to use the bike, please limit your time to 20 minutes so that everyone has a chance to use the bike.
