In September 2016, the Fanshawe Student Union launched FSU Bikes, a bike sharing program for Fanshawe College students. Students can borrow a bike (for up to three days), by visiting the Biz Booth (located in the Student Union Building).
I am a bike enthusiast myself and I decided to create this program because the city of London is now leaning towards creating a bike-friendly culture and I felt that Fanshawe should get on board with another sustainability initiative, said Carlie Forsythe, FSU President.
The bike program is an important initiative for Fanshawe because it focuses on getting students into the communities and exploring our city. Many students living away from home are forced to rely on the bus system and taxis, which can be both restrictive and expensive. The bike share will give students a feasible and healthy alternative that lets them explore at their own pace.
The program also hopes to encourage students to leave their cars at home. Reducing the number of single-rider vehicles will have a positive impact on the environment and the infrastructure of Fanshawe campuses.
If you are interested or would like to get involved in the bike share program feel free to get in touch with FSU President Carlie Forsythe, either in person (SC2001 in the Student Centre), by phone at 519.452.4109 ext. 6314 or send Carlie an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
. The Fanshawe Student Union has a firm commitment to sustainable practices and wants to get the student body involved as much as possible.
