Campuses with the most bike repair stations – Updated

Below is a list (likely incomplete) of those college campuses in the United Sates that have the most free bicycle repair stations on campus. These handy “fixit” locations provide routine and emergency service options for campus (and general public) cyclists. Not surprisingly, UC Davis leads the pack. What did surprise me were the number of southern schools that made the list, given the general impression that states from the South tend to be the most unfriendly towards bicyclists. Hopefully, this is a sign of a larger (or future) trend.

    Southern Illinois University currently only has one bicycle repair station in the Student Center. However, a 2014 Green Fund Initiative should update the the campus to 7 bicycle repair stations, I believe by the end of the year.
