We are pleased to announce the opening of The Bike Nest, Creighton's
Co-operative Bike Project. Staffed by students, this shop encourages you to bring in your bike to learn how to do small repairs yourself. The Bike Nest has a limited selection of items, such as tubes and repair kits, but in cases of larger repairs, you'll need to provide your own supplies (available at local bike shops).
Located in the basement of McGloin Hall, on the opposite end of the hallway from Java Jay.
Funding for the tools was provided by a grant from the Community Bike Project Omaha. We are deeply grateful for this support.
If you're interested in volunteering at the shop (we'll train you to work on the bikes!), please contact Samantha Senda-Cook.
It is our hope that this shop will be the springboard for more bike-related initiatives on campus. Please contact us if you have ideas to share!
The Creighton Cycling Group is up and running. See their Facebook page for more information!
The general public has been able to use racks mounted on Metro Area Transit (MAT) buses since 2008.
MAT's new Bike & Ride program is a great way to encourage bicycle use and help raise Omaha?s profile as a bike-friendly community, said Tammie Dodge, project manager with Activate Omaha.
Each rack holds two bikes, and the racks will be mounted to the front of the bus.
The bike rack program has been funded with federal grant money for transit projects related to the construction of the Missouri River Pedestrian Bridge between Omaha and Council Bluffs. The racks are not intended for motor-powered bikes (gas or electric), mopeds, tandem and recumbent bikes, tricycles, bikes with training wheels and bikes with trailers or other attachments.
