    starting bike co-op

    Hey

    I'm a college student at Ohio University and right now I'm working on starting a bike co-op on campus. I wanted to know if anyone has any experience with co-ops and can offer any type of advice. Also, does anyone know of any grants that I can apply for the co-op? PM or respond to this

    Thanks,

    Bailey

    make sure there's a really need for a bike co-op first. Ask around. Take surveys. I tried creating a bike co-op in San Diego, but found out there isn't a need since most cyclist here are spandex clad folks riding around on $5000 Moots titanium bikes. If there are then go ahead. If not, your wasting your time.
