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 email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Becca Gilberg, Alternative Transportation Coordinator, will be on-site to guide you through WashU’s robust sustainable transportation program offerings.
