Making an old bike like new!

UVic's bike loan program (also known as SPOKES) is a volunteer bike-share program where volunteers give new life and use to old bikes. Since 2003, the program has been diverting waste from the landfill, improving community health and taking action on climate change. This program supports cycling at UVic.

Location and hours

The program is currently closed and under restructuring but check back for the relaunch date on this page when more information is available. 

Once open, it will be located in the Campus Bike Centre (CBC) in the University Centre. For increased security purposes, the CBC now closes between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. daily. Any questions regarding parking in the CBC can be directed to Campus Security at 250-721-6683 (non-emergency number) or  .
