The ASPCC Cascade Bike Program launched in January 12, 2012 to increase access to affordable, reliable, and sustainable transportation. Through the integration of long-term bicycle loans, education, and recreation, the Cascade Bike Program will enhance the physical and cultural development of students. As a resource for alternative transportation, we will minimize our campus and community environmental impact.
We are here to help connect PCC Cascade Students to bicycles. We can loan you a commute-ready bike for a term, or consecutive terms. Our local partners can help you learn to fix your own bike in free, DIY workshops. We can give you awesome volunteer opportunities. The Bike Program is administered through ASPCC Cascade. The Bike Program is an important step in the PCC’s commitment to sustainability and reducing our impact on the environment.
Bikes may be checked out one term at a time and then renewed each subsequent term. A usage fee of $15 per term will be due at the time of the contract/check out.
Financial Holds: Bicycles are valued at $400 with their accessories. If not returned, a $400 hold will be placed on borrower’s student account to cover the replacement expenses of the lost or damaged bicycle or accessories.
