Want to learn to maintain your own bicycle? Curious about what is legal or not in terms of biking? Not sure the best route to get to CSU on your bike? Join The Spoke, CSU Police Department and Parking & Transportation Services to learn about this and more. This introductory class will cover basic bicycle maintenance including bike anatomy, lubing your chain, changing a flat, and the elements of an ABC Quick Check. The CSU Police Department will discuss bicycle safety, laws & common crashes. Aaron Buckley, Employee Focused Active Transportation Professional from Parking and Transportation Services will introduce how Parking & Transportation Services can help you plan your commute, reduce your transportation costs, design your route to campus, and learn about additional educational opportunities.
Goals and Target Audience:
Our goal is for each participant to be able to change a flat tire, and properly lube their chain, while also learning how to safely navigate the CSU campus by bike. In addition they will be able to use the ABC Quick Check guidelines prior to each ride to better ensure a safe ride. Our target audience is any person who rides a bike either intermittently or routinely and wants to be able to sustain themselves when out riding. We are actively seeking out Faculty and Staff who commute by bike to campus or have interest in exploring this transportation model.
