Boise State University’s on-campus bike shop, Cycle Learning Center, recently was featured on the blog of the local bike shop State Bicycle Co. Their retailer spotlight read, in part:
Q: “Cycle Learning Center” has a different ring to it than most bike shops. What was the inspiration for the name?
A: It stems from our mission to be a place where folks can walk in and learn something in order to increase their self-sufficiency with bike repair. We want all the students at Boise State to graduate with the knowledge of fixing flat tires, keeping a lubed chain, and basic maintenance they can do themselves. The Cycle Learning Center aims to be a bike shop where customers aren’t shunned for asking stupid questions and feel safe to learn the basics without the barriers of intimidation.
