The mission of the Lyon Education and Adventure Program's bike shop is to support the development of healthy lifestyles and sustainable communities through cycling.
Our bike programs advocate cycling as a means of health, recreation, and transportation. We seek to make cycling an accessible activity for everyone and to create a bike friendly community.
To do this, we provide quality, affordable bikes, parts, and repair services; we offer educational and instructional opportunities to the community about bike safety, repair, and maintenance.

Professionalism is key. We aim for every person to know that they are welcome in our shop, for their needs to be met, and for every question to be answered.
We aim to get each bike fixed quickly and efficiently with minimal cost to the customer.
Our bike shop is run by student-mechanics, who have been trained in bike repair and maintenance. The development of our student-mechanics and the experience they gain through their work in the shop allows them to share their knowledge when interacting with shop customers.
The Bike Shop is open Monday & Friday Noon - 5PM and Tuesday - Thursday 2PM - 5PM. The Bike Shop is not open when the College is closed for holidays.
If you need assistance outside of our normal operating hours, please contact us at 870-307-7529 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bicycling has all of the advantages of walking and driving with none of the pitfalls. It's fast, efficient, and because it uses no fuel it practically pays for itself in a few weeks. No more searching for parking spaces or walking to class. With bike racks on campus and next to most buildings, a bicycle is the best way to get around at Lyon College.
Lyon College is part of Fuji University, a program that seeks to make bicycles readily available to students, faculty, staff, and alumni of colleges and universities across the United States. Lyon students, faculty, staff, and alumni are able to purchase a quality made bike at a discounted rate through our bike shop. Please stop by our shop to discuss this benefit in more detail with one of our knowledgeable staff.
Cruiser/Comfort: These bikes are designed for comfort. They are great for campus, local travel, and vacation. Bikes are available in both the traditional frame style and the step-through frame style for easy on and off.
Hybrid/Commuter: These bikes offer a more upright riding position and have easier pedaling. They are great for quick, efficient trips on campus and local travels, as well as for longer rides and have tires with more grip than a road bike, but less than a mountain bike for lighter but durable riding on paved roads.
Mountain/Sport: These bikes have a less upright riding position and tires with more aggressive treads. Whether traveling on campus or on trails they can take you anywhere. Some options have front suspension while others have a more traditional rigid frame.
Urban: These bikes are designed for the urban dweller who navigates the busy streets of their city, with frequent starts and stops on paved terrain. This style is made to be light and these bikes have either fixed gears or are single speed.
Road: These bikes offer quick handling, responsive shifting and braking, and have a less upright riding position. They are quick and light in getting you around campus and across long distances. They are designed more for performance, speed, and distance.
Our shop mainly services mountain and road bikes owned by students and community members, as well as older cruiser style bikes.
Generally, flat tires take about a half hour. Small repairs and tune-ups can typically be completed in a day. Major repairs or specific part replacements typically take three to four days to complete. We will let you know the expected wait time when you bring your bike into the shop.
Below is an overview of the most common services we provide. Prices below indicate the cost of labor. Cost of parts is separate.

Mechanics perform a complete assessment on every bike that comes into the shop for repairs. Assessments are free, and an essential part of the repair process.
Often, one problem can influence additional problems. When we can assess and understand the functioning of the bike as a whole, we can provide a better and longer lasting repair service.
Whether you have a specific concern or just want to know the condition of the bike from your garage, we will assess all aspects of your bike and give you an estimate at any time.
Mechanics will assess all bikes for condition of parts including but not limited to:
Pedal and Crank
Damage and Wear
Damage, Dirt, Breakage
Hanger & Derailleurs, Cable Wear, Ease of Shifting

Bicycle tune ups are recommended on an annual basis or every 1,000-3,000 miles. For those who ride in the winter, a spring tune up is important no matter how many miles you've ridden; salt, grime, and moisture can cause rust to build up throughout your bike.
Tune ups can help improve your bike's ride, shifting, and speed. From a Mini Tune-Up to a Mother-Overhaul, we have something to fit every budget to get you cycling smoothly in no time.
