Group buying bicycles!

The VUB organises a group buying of bicycles with substantial discounts for the broad VUB-community (students, staff, alumni,…) in partnership with Cyclevalley. A Cyclevalley representative will provide more information on the offer during test sessions on campus Etterbeek (26/04 & 03/05) and campus Jette (24/04 & 07/05). There is the possibility to make test rides on the offered (electric) citybikes, (electric) folding bikes, speed pedelecs and electric steps during these sessions on both campuses!

An overview of the offer, the discounts and the registration module can be found on the page of Cyclevalley. The group buying will close on Wednesday 30 May. Payment with VUB-ecocheques is possible up to €216, the first 25 bike purchases will receive a bicycle lock from the VUB!

26/04 Vélofixer campus Jette (11h – 15h) (Building A, workplace technical services)

03/05 Vélofixer campus Etterbeek (11h – 15h) (Esplanade)

Have your bike checked and repaired by the Vélofixer, you only pay for the new parts! Send an e-mail with your name, mobile number, overview of reparations and when you can drop your bike off to maarten.ipers@vub.be by Monday 23/04 (Jette) or Monday 30/04 (Etterbeek). Be specific on the repairs so the correct spare parts can be foreseen (e.g. let us know the size of your tyres, add pictures).

You can drop your bike off before college/meeting and arrange a pick-up time with the repairer. Please leave a note on your bike with name, phone number and what needs to be fixed. You can pay by card for the new parts.
