Bike Co-op

Mission

The PLU Bike Co-op is a student-run, college-owned bike shop dedicated to promoting cycling on campus and teaching bicycle maintenance. It is open to all members of the Pacific Lutheran University community. During open hours students, faculty, or staff can stop by to have their bike fixed, learn how to repair it themselves, or rent a bike. Bike Co-op employees are available to answer questions, teach, and repair bicycles. We aim to provide the recreational opportunity for as many people at PLU to ride as possible, as well as providing safe bike riding as a viable alternative means of transportation from cars.

Location

The Bike Co-op is located at the base of Harstad facing Red Square.
