During the third week of February, the Provo Bicycle Collective will be providing broken bicycles and spare parts for students to repair. Students can come to the Clyde Building Lounge to learn how to assemble a bike from scratch while also making a difference in the community.
The service project, “Some Assembly Required”, will be from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Feb. 19, 21 and 22 (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) in the step-down lounge of the Clyde Building.
All bicycles will be sold at a discount to those who otherwise could not afford to buy a fully functional bicycle. All proceeds from bike sales go to funding facilities and training for the Provo bicycling community. The Provo bicycle collective is a non-profit organization and is operated by unpaid volunteers.
This service project is part of the college’s celebration of National Engineers Week. It will provide engineering and technology students with an opportunity to use their skills and knowledge to make a real difference in the community.
The project is open to all students, regardless of their expertise level. Students can learn how to assemble and repair bicycles while helping out a local non-profit. Expert bike mechanics and novices alike are invited to participate.
