Argonne’s Bike Share Program Season 7 Ending Soon

With the upcoming end of Daylight Savings Time (November 1, 2015), the Argonne Bike Share Program will begin picking up bicycles and putting them into storage. While the bikes are in storage they will be tuned up by Brian Zook (FMS-MAT) so they will be ready for next year.

It was a good year with fewer maintenance issues and no reported accidents.

The Bike Share Program provides free bicycles, available for employee use, all over the laboratory (bikes must stay within the laboratory boundary; no forays into the forest preserve). It’s a healthy and fun way to travel around the Argonne site without producing carbon emissions.

If you have any suggestions for next year, please contact Gregg Kulma (

Join the Bike Share Program!

Argonne’s Bike Share program provides an alternative to automobile use for travel around the laboratory site and it promotes sustainability and wellness in the workplace. The program offers bicycles at various locations throughout Argonne’s campus. Bikes are available from early spring until early autumn, weather permitting.

Bikes and helmets were paid for with funds received for recycled materials through the lab’s Pollution Prevention Program and from Argonne’s participation in energy-saving programs with ComEd.
