Free Bike Repair Workshops!

Have you always wanted to learn some bike repair skills, but never knew where to start?  Check out our free public workshop series open to all students, on Fridays at 2:30 pm, on the Campus Center Upper Patio.  We will be covering different topics every week, but our mechanics are happy to answer questions about anything bike-related!  (BYOB optional)

Spring GIM

Want to help manage a 100% student-run business at Tufts, promote sustainability, learn bike repair, and make new friends? Come to our spring GIM. We can use your help, and absolutely no experience is necessary!

Join us!

Want to help promote bike culture at Tufts?!  As always, we’re looking for more students to join our team.  Fix bikes, plan events, and learn what it takes to manage a complex, entirely student-run organization!  No experience is necessary – just enthusiasm.  To get involved, just shoot us an email: tuftsbikeshare@gmail.com

 

 

Closed for Winter!

We are now officially closed for winter.  Our bikes are safely in storage, and our weekly mechanic hours have ceased.  We plan to re-open in the Spring, as soon as the weather allows (after the snow has mostly passed).  In the meantime, feel free to email us at tuftsbikeshare@gmail.com with any questions or feedback!

Want to join our team for next semester?  Shoot us an email – we’re always looking for new members!!!
