May is National Bike Month, and Bike to Work Day is fast approaching on Thursday, May 12. Get ready to ride by tuning up your bike, joining a free class to learn bike safety tips and skills, entering our Bike Safety Pledge prize drawing and rallying your department colleagues to ride!
Enjoy a bike tune-up discount
In anticipation of Bike to Work Day, the Campus Bike Shop is offering a full bike tune-up special, “Ride a Safe Bike,” for $70 ($85 value). This is a popular special that sells out quickly. The offer is valid through April 29 or until fully booked. You must call in advance for an appointment: 650.723.9300.
Attend a free bike safety class
Be a better rider by attending an upcoming Bike Safety Class. You will learn bike safety best practices and the rules of the road. Attendees also receive a voucher for $10 off your purchase of any bike helmet from the Campus Bike Shop. Pre-registration is required on the Stanford Department of Public Safety website.
Attend a free bike repair clinic
Do you know how to operate the wheel quick release? How about testing your brakes to be sure they are working properly or adjusting your seat post, saddle and handlebar stem for a more comfortable ride? Learn how to do these things and more by attending the free Bike Repair Mini Clinic. Hosted by Beeline Bikes, the class will teach attendees how to complete a bike safety check for a safer ride.
