Blue Bikes needs YOU to come check out a bike!

Good news Utah State cyber space! Aggie Blue Bikes has bikes available for three month check outs. How many, you may ask? 20 + bikes which means if you are reading this right now, you have a HUGE chance of getting a bike for the next three months. Thats three months of pure bicycle bliss for FREE. So what are you waiting for? Logan isn't getting any warmer and you need a way to get around town so don't wait any longer. Get your bones to Aggie Blue Bikes and get yourself a sweet ride to get you through the winter!
Think it's to cold to ride? Lies, we refuse to believe this. Although we do recommend that in the winter you slow it down, keep it real, and ride a little more cautiously, there is no reason to give up the bike just because old man winter has come around.
Now that you know whats new at Blue Bikes, come in and get yourself a sweet ride, we will be here with smiling faces to make all of your bike dreams come true.

In other news....

Last week was USU sustainability week and we got our first run with our NEW pedal powered PA system. Whoa, wait... a new one? No, the old one didn't break, we built a second one so we can power bigger and better concerts. We also built a second system because our first one was being showcased in Portland, Oregon at the Supercomputing conference with USU's High Performance Computing Department. Because we are so proud of our new and old system, here a few photos from the sustainability concert.

HEY LADIES! This Wednesday is your night! 6-8pm at our shop

If you haven't noticed, the cold doesn't scare us off our bikes. If anything we are more excited to ride. Why? Because it is more important for us to ride our bikes in the winter than at any other time of the year in Cache Valley. With those nasty inversions looming in the back of our minds, it's the little trips on the bike that count the most.
But enough of the preaching on air quality, This Wednesday, November 18 6-8pm is Ladies Night here in the shop. What exactly does that mean? Ladies only wrench night. If you are a lady and you want to learn about your bike, come and learn the things you need to know without the hassle of the guys hanging around. Don't know how to fix your bike at all? Well great! Thats why we want you to come! Don't wait around till your bike has crazy problems, work on it at Ladies Night. We promise it will be a good, education, and fun time for all the ladies that come. We can't promise the same for the fellas....

A website with a personal touch

We all live busy lives but the internet makes it easy for us to stay on top of what is going on around us. But when a website isn't user friendly, it doesn't make anything easier for anyone, and we know that at Aggie Blue Bikes. Thats why we have revamped our website to be as hassle free as our bike check outs and one-on-one tutorials are.
Our new website www.aggiebluebikes.org is so easy to use you might just want to ditch facebook for the day and explore our educational videos page or see what Aggie Blue Bikes is up to by taking a look at our events page. If you are unsure about what we offer to students, check out our student page and get the low down.
With recent changes to Aggie Blue Bikes, such as community memberships, we are adding pages so don't get up in arms if some of the pages aren't as navigatable as others, content is coming soon!
Take a look around at the site and stay hip on what is happening at Blue Bikes. You can still come into the shop and ask us what is going on, we like that a lot too.
