Support C.U. Cycling: Donate to our Future Funder Campaign!

C.U. Cycling has teamed up with the Carleton University Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) to raise funds for a a FULL DAY of free bicycle maintenance workshops and bicycle tune-ups in Spring 2014. Whether you want to learn how to keep your bike in tip-top shape or if you just need an experienced mechanic to check it over, we want to see Carleton University biking safely and in style!

The workshop

We want to give students, staff, faculty, alumni, and neighbours the opportunity to get their hands greasy and learn the very basics to bike maintenance. The first step can often be the most difficult one, so we want to demystify the wonderful world of bicycle repair.

We will cover topics such as, but not necessarily limited to:

  •  Maintenance, cleaning, and safety checks
  • Tire inflation and tube and tire replacement
  • Brake adjustment

What we need

We are looking to raise $1000.00 to help cover the cost of space, equipment and mechanics to make this safety conscious event a reality. We plan to offer this service-based event free of charge to the entire Carleton community.

The benefits

The proposed project directly addresses the benefits of active transportation use. Not only will Carleton community members receive bicycle tune-ups free of charge, they will also gain the skills and confidence to maintain their own bicycles and operate them safely. As a result, our project serves to promote cycling as a healthy and environmentally friendly way to commute.
