This is pretty revolutionary stuff: when was the program started? I was in charge of keeping three department bikes ride-able for my former department for eleven years, and it was a huge hassle! Now my new department has no bikes at all, and it's a huge hassle, as well: but no more, as this arrangement sounds too good to miss. Way to go, Campus Bike Shop!
