Are you a CSU employee interested in becoming more confident riding a bicycle to work? Parking and Transportation Services offers the Get Back on the Bike program to help you master everything from safety to minor bike repairs, and is seeking participants for the academic year.

Back on the Bike helps employees who want to bike to work learn how to tune up their bike, provides them with free safety gear, and teaches strategies for navigating traffic, safety and comfort obstacles through personalized training. The program is limited to 10-15 employees.

Back on the Bike offers faculty and staff :

  • Free bicycle tune-up courtesy of Parking and Transportation Services and the Spoke
  • Free bike safety gear including a bike lock, helmet, light, and carry bag
  • Hands-on travel training and bicycle skills development
  • Eight monthly educational sessions with lunch provided
  • Online participation tracking system
  • Confidential health assessments administered by the Recreation Center
  • Option to provide consent to the team to use your de-identified data for research to improve future travel training

Participation in the program requires that employees attempt to commute by bicycle to work three times per week from September-November and March-May, and one time a week during December-February.
