Spokes Bicycle Bursaries
The GSS was proud to be a donor when the SPOKES Bike Bursary Program was founded. Spokes provides free bicycles to UVIC students, bicycle repair maintenance and cheap bike rentals for your visitors. Please note that if you Google "Spokes Victoria" the phone number provided by Google is the front office phone number of the GSS! This is a mistake on part of Google! To contact SPOKES, please see https://www.uvic.ca/sustainability/involved/spokes/index.php
The number of bursaries available each semester is dependent on the number of volunteers and the quality of bicycle donations. SPOKES aims to give out as many bicycles as possible. The bursaries consist of a refurbished bicycle, lock and offer for free cycling and maintenance workshops.
