Executive Summary: I had three main projects. First, I applied for a grant from Ameren Illinois to install a permanent bike pump station outside the WBRP Bike Co-op. This grant was successful and fully funded at $650. Second, I organized the WBRP’s new space at 724. W. Washington and developed organization for tools to be repaired and a volunteer check in station. Last, I developed a guide for IWU first year students who want to get involved and explore the Bloomington-Normal community.
