Blugold's Bike Lease Program:
In 2010, transportation accounted for 8,247 metric tons of CO2 emissions on the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire campus, accounting for 21% of our total carbon footprint. In an effort to reduce our carbon emissions, the Environmental Adventure Center and the Student Office of Sustainability began the Blugold's Bike Lease Program. Our aim is to reduce the number of students driving to and from campus and other locations. By participating in this program, you will contribute to our campus goal of carbon neutrality while also reducing your own carbon footprint.
Bike Lease Pricing:
Bikes will be available to rent from the EAC at the beginning of each semester. Leases include the ability to store the bike at the EAC, space permitted, and free bike tune-ups. When the bike is returned at the end of its lease term, undamaged, half the total cost will be refunded to the customer. If damage fees are assessed, these fees will be deducted from the refund.
