Bike Tune-ups & Commuter Fair

April 14, 2022 to April 26, 2022
Every 6 days
10:00 am
Edison Courtyard outside of DUC

April is one of two annual Active Transportation Months and the Office of Sustainability along with Parking & Transportation Services will be providing three free tune-up days on the Danforth campus*:

  • Thursday, April 14th 10am – 2pm
  • Wednesday, April 20th 10am – 2 pm
  • Tuesday, April 26th 10am – 2 pm

*The Medical Campus will be hosting a free tune-up on Thursday, April 21st.

Please note: Tune-ups are first-come, first-served. You may drop off your bike into the queue if there is still availability. We will stop accepting bikes once we reach capacity or after 1:45 pm (whichever comes first).

In the case of inclement weather, the event may be postponed. Any last-minute updates will be posted on this page.

At the Bike Tune-up and Commuter Fair, attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • Get a free bike safety check and basic tune-up done by mechanics from Big Shark.
  • Register your bike for free.
  • Interact with regional transportation non-profit organizations.
  • Purchase a $25 U-lock from WUPD (students may pay via student billing, employees may pay with a check and show ID)
  • Chat with WashU’s Sustainable Transportation Coordinator and receive a commute consultation to learn more about your transportation options.

Free Tune-Up Rules. Please review before attending.

  • Tune-up services are only available to WashU employees, students, and basic service contractor employees.
  • You will receive a text message when your bike is ready to pick up. If you cannot come right away, please pick up your bike by 2 pm when we will vacate the area. We cannot be responsible for stolen bikes.
  • Each attendee can only bring one bike to the tune-up.
  • Your bike must be registered prior to receiving a tune-up. If you haven’t already, register now to record important details about you and your bike. We will have your registration sticker ready for you at the event.
  • Free tune-ups can last from 10-20 minutes per bike and cover basic maintenance only. Some part replacements may be available to purchase via credit card (tubes, brake cables, etc.) or will be referred to a bike shop if repair needs do not fit within the scope of the basic tune-up. Due to high demand for bikes and bike parts, your specific part may or may not be readily available.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email or Becca Gilberg, Alternative Transportation Coordinator, will be on-site to guide you through WashU’s robust sustainable transportation program offerings.
