Launched a full campus bike center in the fall of 2017. the center offers rental bikes for a bike share program, a recycled building and all recycled parts and furniture for the store it self. The recycled shipping container is the building. We will be working to make this building a self sufficent net zero building in the future students will help design it. The education of the bike center and repairs and rentals of bikes and events are all done by students, These students are bike educators, and will work with faculty, staff, students to improve the bike program on campus and advocate with the city. this will make us an eventual leader in bike programs on campus. Our sustainability program manages the bike shop and students. We have 5 student employees and all the work to create and build was partnership of student, faculty, and staff work. We have bikes donated for bike share. We audit and repair over 300 abandoned bikes that go to campus ministry for an auction. 100% of auction bikes income is used to directly support a mission project in Mexico. We are constantly working to recycle parts for new bikes from broken old bikes, use recycled materials in the shop from campus surplus and encourage green transit on campus. Students are conducting internship and research projects on transit, climate, building design, economics, and entrepreneurship based off this bike shop for class credit.
