The TFH Green Bike program provides 10 to 20 bikes that can be loaned to Scripps students, faculty, or staff for 24 hours at a time.
Each semester, the TFH Green Bike program raffles off approximately 60 to 80 bikes to the Scripps student body for their use throughout the semester. Those who are randomly selected have the opportunity to come and pick out a suitable bike, lock, and helmet for the remainder of the semester.
The TFH Green Bike program is a teaching-based program that strives to give Scripps students the basic bike maintenance skills necessary to keep their own bike in good condition. The Fix It Yourself program, founded in spring 2015, gives students the opportunity to come learn these skills by working with a technician to fix up a bike that then becomes theirs for the semester. We hope that through the teaching of bike maintenance, students will learn the value of a bike and feel enthusiastic about riding around on a machine that they worked to fix.
