The Campus Bike Center will be closed Thursday, September 20 from
2-6pm to facilitate in Light the Night.
The Campus Bike Center — a collaboration between the University of Illinois and The Bike Project of Urbana-Champaign — is dedicated to empowering individuals with knowledge about how to repair and maintain bicycles and encouraging mode-shift away from single-occupancy vehicles. This educational center offers hands-on experiential learning that students can’t get in a classroom. By empowering people with the ability to fix a bicycle and providing a connection between the campus and the community, the Bike Center promotes bicycling, collaboration, and community spirit.
The Campus Bike Center distributes UI bike registration stickers; maintains the campus Bike Fix-it Stations; provides a central base for the bicycling community on campus; encourages mode-shift through various events and classes throughout the year; distributes and explains educational information and resources regarding bicycling; educates students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors about basic bicycle maintenance; and collaborates with campus and community partners in bicycle-related programs.
During open hours each weekday, the Campus Bike Center provides tools, parts, refurbished bikes for sale, and dedicated volunteers to help shop members and the larger community with their bicycle maintenance needs. This is a hands-on, educational space meant to provide knowledge and experience about fixing bicycles, not a “drop it off for repair” bike shop.
The Campus Bike Center is located in the southwest corner of the Natural Resources Garage. The garage is between Sixth St. and Goodwin Ave. on Pennsylvania Ave.
