This winter marks 40 years since the founding of the Bike Barn.
Below is an excerpt from the February 1971 UCD Spectator article titled: “Bike Repair Shop Earns Approval:”
“An ASUCD bicycle repair shop providing students with a facility in which to repair their own bikes has been approved by the Legislative Assembly.
The project, piloted through planning stages and before the assembly by Vice President Duke Armstrong, provides for a manager, supplies, expenses and operation on a trial basis during the winter quarter. At the end of the quarter the assembly transportation committee will review and recommend to the full body whether the shop should be continued.”
Congratulations on 40 years to the Bike Barn!
