Naropa University bike sharing James - Wednesday, August 18, 2010, 4:24 am

Community Cycles, a nonprofit organization that educates and advocates for the safe use of bicycles, today announced a deal with Naropa University to manage the school’s bike sharing program. Community Cycles employees and volunteers will manage the 120-bicycle fleet at Naropa’s campus bike shack while also helping students and faculty perform maintenance and repairs on their bikes.

Naropa students and faculty may check out a bike for free with their school ID card. Alumni and visitors may borrow a bike for $5 a day. Students may also enroll in a bike shack membership program in which a Community Cycles mentor will help them on bicycle maintenance.

“We’re thrilled to be managing Naropa’s bike shack,” said Community Cycles Executive Director Rich Points, a Naropa graduate. “This is a modest program that will help more students use bicycles to get around town and allow us to empower more people to fix and maintain their bicycles.”

Community Cycles also helps to coordinate Boulder’s Walk and Bike Month each June, runs a holiday bike giveaway for needy kids each December and hosts frequent “Earn-a-Bike” classes in which participants pick out a used bike that they learn how to repair and maintain.
