Bicycles a perk at Pittsburg State

KSAL StaffSeptember 21, 2014

The pastor of Campus Christians at Pittsburg State University is scrambling to meet the demand for bicycles he fixes up and loans to students for the school year.

Don Smith has been offering the service for decades, getting bikes in working order and loaning them out for a refundable $35 fee.

The Morning Sun reports that this is the first fall semester that Smith didn’t have enough bicycles for every student who wanted one. He’s been working to whittle down a waiting list with 75 names.

Smith repairs the bicycles in a shop in the basement of the Campus Christians house. He says he tries not to make them too attractive, since good-looking bikes can be attractive to thieves.
