  1. Several LCIs in town

    Currently, there are several League Cycling Instructors in Champaign County.  Notable contacts include: Lily Wilcock, Cynthia Hoyle, and Jeff Yockey.  This training is provided through the League of American Bicyclists, and it supports bike education classes from certified instructors.

  2. update on classes

    Hello all,

    A quick update about classes, the Campus Bike Center is working on holding 2 classes a month on Thursday afternoons.  At avoid sending too many e-mails we will be posting them on facebook and our webpage. 

    Next week Thursday April 7th from 1 to 2 pm our staff member Marty Miller will be hosting a class on Sturmey Archer 3 spd hubs at the Campus Bike Center.

    Early May we will announce a wheel building class.  If you want to build wheels keep your eyes out for a sign up sheet.

    This Wednesday April 6th at 6:30 pm at the Urbana location we will be having a shop clean up night.  We have been working hard to organize and clean the space.  If everyone comes and helps out we can bring the shop to a whole new level of clean.

  4. weekly update

    Hello all, Last week was a little weird, but great.  We had some strange fluctuations in attendance that went against normal attendance/weather patterns.  We sold 1 bike for $140, 1 build-a-bike for $45, 2 memberships for $50, and grossed $768.80.  I ran out of room upfront so I started putting for sale bikes in the back of the shop.  My goal is to have half of the storage area be refurbished bikes by spring so we are ready for the rush.  The hydraulic disc brake class went very well.  Matt Crosby from Neutral came early and helped setup as well as publicized the event.  We have 5 people in attendance and everyone learned a lot.  We may have a second class to go deeper into bleeding and lever modulation adjustment. 

    This week I plan on helping to get Lily up to speed as Stacy sees fit, building bikes, and working on upcoming advocacy events.

  5. weekly digest

    Hello all,

    This past week was productive.  We were able to prepare 50 bikes at the warehouse, as well as 60 bikes at the two shops.  I created a use agreement for the cargo bike that is being review by the Universities lawyers.  We sold 1 bike for $120, 1 build-a-bike for $150, 1 build-a-bike for $80, 2 memberships for $50, and grossed $549.50.  I worked on setting up the yearly bike shipment.  I put on a class for the athletic department about basic maintenance and bike safety.  We got a bunch of bikes from the City of Champaign.  I also worked on search committee tasks.

    This week I will be working on preparing more bikes for shipment as well as coordinating the shipment.  I will be trying to make room in the back of shop as we have 30 bikes ready for shipment here.  I will be giving the cargo bike to Rick for demonstration to his department.

  6. Morgan Johnston speaks with ESE 360, Rob Kanter

    Rob Kanter is teaching a class about environmental writing.  Rob is known for his Environmental Almanac work, and began teaching this class last year.  A year ago, Morgan Johnston gave a presentation overviewing the work that is happening with the Climate Action Plan.  This year, rather than a presentation, the students did a group interview.  There were twenty students.
