Environment Week Comes to an End

Friday, June 04, 2010

Thanks to everyone that made environment week possible this year. A shout out to Brigitte, Danny, Marc, Vedrana, Amina, Matt, and Leah.

We had a bunch of great activities this year but I did want to take a moment to especially mention the bike repair kiosk that Matt was running during this year's BBQ. Like every year, there are dozens of individuals that come by looking for some help getting their bikes back into working order.

Well, worry no more friends, the Bike Coop will soon be finished. You can check some earlier posts about the Coop and all the cool services we hope to have but the essential is that campus community members will now have a space to fix up their bikes with the guidance of a technician.

And the timing couldn't be better. At this year's bike repair kiosk there were many bikes that came our way that were just on the border of not being road worthy. In the picture below you can see a brake line that was maybe a couple of minutes away from complete failure.

I am not going to mother you and detail the number of bike deaths that occur annually in Canada (263 - okay I couldn't help myself) but if you want to stay safe on the road, make sure you keep your bike in tip top shape.
