2017 Pilot Program
No wheels? No problem. The Acadia Book-A-Bike program is Acadia's answer to active transportation on campus and in the community.
At the Vaughan Memorial Library you can now check-out a bike like you check out a book. Just show your Acadia ID card at the circulation desk during open hours to check-out a bike and helmet for up to 24 hours. There are four donated bikes available on a first-come-first-served basis.
The Acadia Book-A-Bike program launched on Earth Day April 22nd, 2017 and will operate until the end of October.
This program promotes health and wellness and provides an alternative to motor vehicle use, which produces greenhouse gas emissions and contributes to climate change.
The Acadia Book-A-Bike program is open to all staff, faculty and students with a valid Acadia ID card. Participants must agree to sign a waiver and be at least 18 years of age to participate. Those under 19 must have a parent co-sign the waiver.
Acadia Book-A-Bike is a partnership between the Acadia Sustainability Office, the Acadia Students' Union and the Vaughan Memorial Library. Funding is provided by the Acadia Student Wellness Fund and the Acadia Sustainability Office with support from the County of Kings and the RCMP.
In Nova Scotia cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists. Participants must learn how to cycle safely and obey the rules of the road. Nova Scotia Bicycle Safety Guide
