The Handlebar

The Handlebar provides a context for meaningful service, community building, resource sharing and experiential learning related to biking. Here, students, faculty and staff work as leaders and volunteers assisting fellow Dickinsonians to learn the skills of bike repair and maintenance, build their own bike mechanic and leadership skills, and participate in a program that reclaims and reuses materials to provide a valuable environment-friendly benefit to the campus community.
