UC BikeShare

Students, faculty and staff can sign up for $10 and ride ALL YEAR.  Members can sign out a bike from sun up to sun down.  With a variety of bikes to offer, it is a great way to reduce your paw print while also enjoying the local scenery.

UC BikeShare currently has 8 Trek 3700 Mountain Bikes, 4 high performance 4500 Mountain Bikes, 1 Allant Grocery Store Bike (with baskets and all), 2 Fuji mountain bikes, and 2 Trek Allant bikes.  The bikes are stationed to the right of the main entrance to Wismer, and can be checked out/in through the Campus Safety office.  While locks are provided with each bike, helmets are not provided but are strongly encouraged. 

Our Mechanic:

Matteo Favero’s (pictured above) passion for all things bicycle began after riding over the Golden Gate Bridge at the end of summer, 2006.  After many hours of learning from his mistakes, he has become a capable bike mechanic.  He honed his skills at the Community Bike Shop in Charlottesville, Virginia, through which he also taught bicycle education to youth and adults as a League Cycling Instructor. As a League Instructor, he teaches safe road riding and commuting practices as well as mechanics.  His riding experiences have taken him from the rural roads of central Virginia to the busy city streets of Hong Kong and NYC to the (supposedly) flat roads of the Midwest.  Here in Collegeville you might see him on his yellow Kidztandem doing errands with his daughters, or on his vintage Fuji bikes riding to teach piano lessons at the Community Music School in Trappe.
