Summer Bike Tune-Up

June 21, 2021
10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Edison Courtyard outside of DUC

Join the Office of Sustainability and Parking & Transportation Services for a free tune-up day on Monday, June 21 from 10 am to 2 pm.

Due to the loosening of some Covid-19 campus restrictions, we are able to adopt a format similar to previous years. Please note that this may change if university guidelines change.

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

At this Summer Bike Tune-Up, attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • Get a free bike safety check and basic tune-up and meet Francesca, the mechanic behind Vanimal. See below for the tune-up rules.
  • Pick up free bike bells, lights, maps, and guides.

Free Tune-Up Rules. Please review before attending.

  • Tune-up services are only available to WashU employees, students, and basic service contractor employees.
  • Please try to arrive toward the beginning of the event. Tune-ups are first-come, first-served. You may drop off your bike into the queue. We will stop accepting bikes once we reach capacity.
  • 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. Bike owners may purchase parts on site 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.
