Bicycles Available to Students, Faculty, and Staff - 10/8/2012

Bicycles available at Ruth Lilly Student Center
 You might have noticed some shiny new bikes parked outside the Ruth Lilly Student Center. Marian University has started a new bicycle sharing program and the bikes are available to students, faculty, and staff.

“We want to start a cycling culture on campus that extends beyond our 19-time championship cycling team. We want Marian University students, faculty, and staff to embrace cycling for fun, exercise, transportation and competition. These bikes are a great way to build on the cycling culture that is already a part of the Marian University community,” said Deborah Lawrence, Senior Vice President

Head Cycling Coach Dean Peterson worked with Marian University cycling team partner, Matthews Bicycles, to find bikes that everyone could easily use. They selected a beautiful fleet of Electra bikes that reflect the school: new and cutting edge with a vintage flair. 

In addition to the bikes, a former cycling team member, Miles Chandler, is leading an effort to start a cycling club on campus, and they have agreed to maintain the Electra bikes for the campus community. 

“It's quick, it's easy, it's free, and healthy for you, too!” said Scott Ralph, Marian University’s Chief of Police.
The bicycles will be available each day from dawn to dusk, seasonal weather permitting.

For more information, contact the Office of Campus Safety and Police Services in the Ruth Lilly Student Center at 317.955.6789.

Happy cycling!
