THE BIKE STABLE
The Bike Stable is the Office for Sustainability’s clearinghouse for non-motorized transportation education, advocacy, and policy efforts. It has lead workshops and community group rides, conducted non-motorized research, and runs a weekly Open Bike Shop. Open Bike Shop provides students, staff, and community members the opportunity to gain hands-on experience fixing their own bikes under the guidance of peer mechanics. The service is free for all, but attendees are required to bring their own parts (with the exception of incidentals such as cables and housing, which can be purchased at The Bike Stable).
Bike Stable projects and initiatives include:
- The Open Bike Shop...Public welcome! Summer 2016 Open Bike Shop hours are Wednesdays from 12:00 PM to 5:00 p.m.

Open Bike Shop will be closed July 7 through August 2, 2016 for summer break - resuming again on Wednesday, August 3 at 12 p.m.
