Sheridan Bike Hub

Sheridan Bike Hub Logo

The Sheridan Bike Hub is a go-to spot to support all cycling enthusiasts in the Sheridan community! Due to COVID-19, we have modified our programming to ensure the safety of our community members. There are no drop-ins at the Bike Hub. Please read carefully on how you can participate.

The program builds on successful cycling initiatives already in place at the college and it aims to increase cycling for transportation among our students, faculty, and staff on both campuses. The Office for Sustainability (OfS) has been in collaboration with The Region of Peel to develop the Sheridan Bike Hub for the Hazel McCallion and Davis campuses since 2018. 

The program is made up of three components:

  1. Do-It-Yourself bicycle repair space 
  2. Bike Rental program 
  3. Mentorship program 

The Sheridan Bike Hub DIY Repair Spaces are located at HMC A9 (facing Scholars’ Green), and at Davis Portable #7 (by M-wing). Due to COVID-19, we have modified our programming to continue services in a safe manner to the community. Click on the following program links above to see how we have modified our services. The HMC Bike Hub is opened on Thursdays from 9 – 7p.m. Book an appointment to get your bike repaired, rent a bike, or grab some cycling resources. You can also get a glimpse of the space through this virtual tour!

 

Davis DIY Repair Space

A maintained bike is key to a safe and enjoyable ride. The Davis Bike Hub is located at Portable #7 by M-wing and offers online guidance to repairs, basic bike repairs, and bike rentals by appointment only. Book an appointment during the hours of availability, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 – 4p.m.

The Public Outdoor Bike Repairs 

Every Thursday starting September 16 the HMC Bike Hub will offer Outdoor Bike Repairs from 10 – 2 p.m. This new program is opened to the public for this summer. Please book an appointment and follow safety protocols before coming to campus. A tent will be set up by Entrance A9 beside Scholars’ Green Park.

A safety check will be done on your bike to ensure it is working smoothly. The tune-up includes pumping tires, adjusting the brakes & gears, and a general assessment of the bike. Cycling safety resources will also be handed out.
