This semester The Handlebar, Dickinson’s bicycle co-op, continues to impress us with the launch of their Green Bikes Program. The idea behind the program is to rent a bicycle (an efficient and environmentally-friendly mode of travel) to students on campus currently lacking one.
The Green Bikes, named f0r their green fork, which denotes their belonging to the program, can be rented at the beginning of each semester for the entire semester. Students interested simply pay a $25 deposit that is then refunded to them at the end of the semester when they return the bike. Students are, of course, allowed to renew their bike for the next semester if they want.
Dickinson has a Biking @ Dickinson page on their website, and you can read more about the Handlebar on its project page.
