Bike enthusiasts at the University of Illinois have numerous resources on campus to improve their biking experiences. One helpful resource is the Campus Bike Center, which teaches people to fix and bicycles in a very interactive setting, where people can learn more about how to maintain bicycles while feeling like they are part of a real community. Classes and events are offered at the bike center to spread information and awareness about biking and biking community. Please visit Bike at Illinois’ Events page to learn about bicycle-related events in the community.
The Campus Bike Center is open Monday through Friday, and it can be found at 608 E Pennsylvania Ave. in Champaign. They have a Build-A-Bike Program, which allows people to pick out a donated bike and fix it up with help from the volunteer staff. Bike pieces and parts can be purchased at a cheaper price, and the help offered by the volunteer mechanics allows for people to build their own bike while learning how to properly accomplish it.
It is also vital to know that it is mandatory to register all bikes on campus. This can easily be done online at Campus Rec website or Bike at Illinois and it is free of charge, and a registration tag will be provided as proof of the registration. Additionally, anyone can purchase bike parts at the Campus Bike Center at an inexpensive price. The Center offers a lot of services and helpful tools to all bikers and potential bikers at the University, so even if you have never biked before but are interested in learning more about it, the Center will provide you with the necessary knowledge and tools to explore all that biking has to offer.
