Winter Break Office Hours

There are no official office hours in the next two weeks, but since I am staying on campus I am happy to meet with anyone individually to help you with your bicycle. If you are in need of bike repair, please don't hesitate to email me at jjusuf@caltech.edu and we can find a time that works.

Enjoy the holidays, and have a restful winter break.

Sunday Rides

The Bike Lab is having rides on Sunday mornings as a way to encourage road biking for fun! We meet at around 8am outside the Bike Lab and go riding in the Pasadena area (no cars required). The pace is relaxed and we may sometimes stop for breakfast or other landmarks along the way. Our rides are no-drop and we always carry a first aid kit.

If you'd like to come contact me at lxvm@caltech.edu

Best,

Lorenzo

2 Bikeshare Bikes SOON TO BE Available at Sherman Fairchild Library

After many repairs, two bikes are now available for free 24-hour rental from the Sherman Fairchild Library (SFL) for Caltech students, postdocs, and faculty. See the librarians at SFL for more details and to borrow a bike.

UPDATE: My apologies, we are still working out some legal details about the loaner bikes, hopefully they are available by mid-November

Caltech Bikeshare and Bike Lab Merger

The Caltech Bikeshare and Bike Lab merged into one student club this year. What does this mean?

- Maintenance for Bikeshare bikes can be coordinated faster as a single club entity
- Experienced Bike Lab volunteers can repair broken bikes instead of contracting other bike shops
- Shared funding sources, as well as used and donated bikes, will make it possible to offer a greater number of bikes through the Bike Lab

The Bikeshare website can be accessed here:

Expect to see the first 2 Bikeshare bikes in front of the Sherman Fairchild Library next week!

AND please visit the Bike Lab booth at the student club fair tomorrow! (Friday, 5-7pm, Olive Walk)
