In Case You Missed Us...
This month, the ASCP and Outdoor Pursuits hosted a Bike Workshop where we offered bike maintenance and bike resources. In case you missed us, check out a list of bike resources below and a highlight of one really awesome community bike organization called Bikes Together.
Need a Bike but don’t have the money? Earn one through Bikes Together’s Earn-a-Bike Program. Volunteer six hours and earn a bike, helmet, lights and lock! In addition, Denver B-Cycle is offering free flex passes for Auraria students and staff! The Flex Pass gives you access to the system for 365 days and then pay just $3.00 per every 30 minutes. Use promo code Aura18 at checkout. Promo expires 12/31 and is valid for new and renewing members.
Need Bike Maintenance? Visit Outdoor Pursuits (PE Rec Center) or the new CU Denver Bike Shop (Wellness Center) to access expertise, guidance and tools to fix your bike. Otherwise, stop by open shop hours at Bikes Together!
Need Bike Maps, Bike Rules and Bike Safety Tips? Bike Denver and Bicycle Colorado are both non-profit advocacy groups that promote biking and bike safety in our community. Check out their maps and rules of the road.
Bikes Together works to increase access to education, bike maintenance, and to a bicycle to promote active and healthy living. They offer two bike shop locations—in Park Hill and Mariposa—as well as a number of programs for adults and kids and free access to stands and tools during drop in shop hours. Since their inception, they’ve refurbished 6,649 bikes, given away 3,703 and collected 47,157 volunteer hours!
