Got a flat tire, or just need some air? Now you can find a bike-fixing kit located at the Student Activities office in Nestor Hall 116.
The kit includes tube patches, some new tubes, a pump, and other bike fixing tools. Students and employees can borrow items by showing ID. The kit also includes information on local bike shops if you need more help.
The kit is just one way to make Columbus State more accessible to cyclists. Fear of mechanical problems is one thing that can keep people from bike-commuting.
Items were donated by Columbus State’s informal biking community and B1 Bicycles, a downtown bike store at 124 E. Long Street. If you use an item, please consider making a donation back to the kit.
Columbus State is a charter member of 2 by 2012, an initiative to get residents to make two trips by bicycle every month. President Harrison signed the 2 by 2012 pledge in January 2011.
