Entrance to the Bike Co-op

PLU Bike Co-op

The PLU Bike Co-op is a group of PLU students, faculty, and staff who are passionate about bicycling. We want to provide the opportunity for as many people in our PLU and nearby Parkland area to ride as much and as safely as possible. We want to promote a culture of familiarity with bike riding that includes safety, repair and maintenance, knowledge of nearby routes and destinations, and respect for biking laws and policies. We see the Co-op as a unique opportunity to promote sustainability at PLU by reducing dependency on automobiles, especially by the off-campus student community, and to promote a healthy lifestyle for everyone, whether they are a die-hard bicyclist or a casual commuter.

We are located in the basement of Harstad Hall. (Just look for the big orange sign next to the door.)

Tuesday: 9:00 am – 11:00 am
