CCycle - Colorado College’s Student Run Bike Share
Our current bicycle fleet includes 10 beautiful eight-speed bicycles of all sizes which are shared among 25 members each block. With gifts through this crowdfunding initiative, our goal is to make memberships free for all students and members of our community. By supporting CCycle, you will benefit the Colorado College and Colorado Springs communities by:
Providing healthy and environmental transportation
Health benefits of cycling are manyfold: cardiovascular, muscle strength, joint mobility, and decrease in stress levels. The bike share acts not only as a green transportation resource on campus, but also supports students' physical and mental well-being.
Empowering students to explore their community and natural surroundings
Students often report feeling “stuck” within a CC bubble. Walking off campus takes valuable time, and not all students have easy access to a bicycle. This bike share allows them to get to work, downtown, shopping, or to a local coffee shop much quicker and easier, integrating CC with the larger Springs community.
Reducing the current bike clutter on campus.
Hundreds of bicycles are left behind on campus each year, creating a hassle and taking up valuable space. Our bike share eliminates this clutter by providing bikes for students who need them, when they need them, with our flexible block-by-block membership structure.
Providing busy students with hassle-free access to a bike
Flat tires happen. Our amazing volunteer mechanic students take care of them. Without needing to deal with the responsibilities of ownership, students have more time to focus on academics and their passions, and are never stuck with a broken bike.
Promoting a culture of sharing on CC’s campus and beyond
Students are encouraged to return bicycles to our bike fleet hub when not in use, so everyone is able to ride when they need to. We hope to inspire further community building and sharing economies as our program expands and acts as a catalyst for a city-wide bike sharing initiative in the coming years.
Thank you for for joining this cause with us!
Your contribution will help us make the CCycle bike share free for our community. Looking forward, we also hope to expand our bicycle fleet, and purchase mountain bikes for those seeking adventures in the mountains. We can't wait to see how our bike share adapts to the needs of CC over the coming years.
