Saxon Bike Hub

The Bike Hub at Alfred University launched in the Fall of 2009 and is entirely run and staffed by students. 20 hybrid bikes are available for rental by students, faculty, and staff, along with helmets and bike locks.

About the Saxon Bike Hub

The Saxon Bike Hub was created through the initiative of student co-founders, Senior Ian Cramer and Sophomore Jay Price, and was funded by AU Student Senate. Thanks also to The Bicycle Man, our local resource for great bikes and maintenance, and all the great faculty and staff who support the program.
