The Viking eBike project now has six bikes to loan to members of the Western community. Our job is to connect bikes with Vikings as much as possible and the first step to riding our eBikes is to get a quick and mandatory orientation!
Check our calendar for bike availability and orientation schedule, and then email our coordinator, Jillian Trinkaus (firstname.lastname@example.org or x7245) and include your W# for verification to schedule your orientation.
Once oriented, here are three ways you can ride one of our eBikes:
You just want to try it? Perfect! The Office of Sustainable Transportation has a eBike for short-term test rides and for demos. You’ll be able to use our eBike from an hour to four days if you’d like. Use our calendar to reserve the eBike.
No Longer Available:
- You commute to Western in a car, but you dream of becoming a bike commuter. We were accepting applications for our 10 week eBike loan program. In exchange for the loan of an electric assist bicycle with many of the trimmings, our riders contributed feedback on where, when, why, and how much they were riding and how we might improve this project.
- Your department uses a Western vehicle to get to or from campus as part of the job. Office downtown? 32nd street? Or maybe on campus but frequent trips off the hill? Your department was eligible to host an eBike for a quarter for use by staff and students.
