Commuter Resource Fair and Bike Tune-Up

October 5, 2017
11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Edison Courtyard outside of DUC

Join the Office of Sustainability and Parking and Transportation Services in front of the Danforth University Center Thursday, October 5th from 11am-2pm for a free Bike Tune-up and Commuter Resource Fair!

As part of Active Transportation Month, the Commuter Resource Fair aims to support all WashU car-free commuters by offering many services and resources, such as:

  • Free Bike Tune-Ups by 2 mechanics of our local bike shop partner Big Shark Bicycles, to keep your bike in tip top shape,
  • Bike registration and discounted U-Lock through WUPD, to improve your bike’s safety,
  • Discounted bike Helmets with Bears Bikes to improve your own safety,
  • A real front-mounted bike rack equipped on all MetroBuses, available for demonstrations and training,
  • Free gears for all committed car-free commuters (bells, lights and ankle reflectors) as well as maps and guides.

We are also happy to welcome representatives from Enterprise Car-Share who will be available to answer questions about their WashU programs and provide tips on how to best use their vehicles. An Enterprise car will be parked on site for hands-on demonstrations!

Bears Bikes, student-owned organization, will also join us to inform about their services and how you can get involved.

WashU’s own Alternative Transportation Coordinator will be available to provide free consultations for customized, multi-modal commuting plans.

We will be ready to talk about tips for ensuring you have a safe and comfortable active commute! If you would like to receive an email reminder the day of the event, please fill out this form.  To learn more about Big Shark Bicycles, go to
