  Bike and Skateboard Repair


Recreation & Wellness

Bikes need love, too. Our student bike pros are located (outside) at the back of the Campus Recreation Center (REC).  They can help with everything from flat tires to major repairs.  

Follow these steps to get those wheels spinning after a pandemic hiberation:

  1. Bring your bike to the back of the REC (near the Pit)
  2. Scan a QR code and give us your details
  3. Wait right there for quick fixes (e.g. air in tires)
  4. Leave your bike with us for more complex repairs
  5. Check your email for updates
  6. Pick up your rejuvenated wheels

If the weather is rough, our team will not be stationed outside. You can still bring your bike. You'll see signage on the ramp with our phone number (813-974-5557). A member of our team will come out to meet you and pick up your bike.
