Since we were rained out early last week, we are bringing back one more chance to get your bike tuned up before summer!

Join the Operations & Facilities Management Department, in partnership with the Office of Sustainability, for a FREE bike tune up May 26 from 10am – 12pm at Olin Circle Drive!

The free bike tune-ups will be performed by Vanimal, a mobile bike shop that provides repair services for every kind of bike. This locally operated company has creatively managed to fit a whole repair station in the back of a van! Within these few cubic meters, Francesca DeRanzo, owner and operator of Vanimal, performs repairs and shares basic maintenance tips that will extend the life of your bike and increase safety.
