The ACE program fee is $35. The total value of this program is $550 per person. Please make a financial contribution based on your ability to pay. We ask for a $35 minimum payment to cover equipment costs, and ensure we can continue to provide these programs for future riders. Depending on your income situation, some, or all, of this fee may be waived in exchange for work-trade in our workshop or office. Please inquire about this option if needed.
Here's how the program works:
First, you complete the application.
We will call you within one week after receiving your application to complete a phone interview.
If you qualify for the program, we will schedule you for the Bicycle Commuter 101 class (class is Fridays 9:00am - 2:30pm). You must be interviewed and accepted into the program before attending the class.
You will pay a minimum of $35. If you are unable to pay the fee, please let us know so that we can arrange work trade for you. Work trade must be completed before you take your bicycle and equipment with you. You may do work trade during our open hours before the Friday class after you are notified that you have been accepted into the program.
You will take the Bicycle Commuter 101 Class, including basic bicycle upkeep and safety education. This class is on-bikes, meaning you will be riding outdoors, doing skill drills an group riding exercises for approximately 2.5 hours of the class.
Third, you receive a bicycle, lock, and helmet, and other safety gear, based on availability.
Important information to note:
All requirements must be met before you get to depart with your bike, lock, and helmet.
All ACE bicycles are loaners and remain property of Tulsa Hub.
All bicycles must be maintained properly. If an ACE Member finds they are no longer using their bicycle, they understand that it must be returned to the Tulsa Hub.
All ACE applicants agree to periodic follow-up once completing the ACE Program.
All Bicycle Commuter 101 Classes must have a minimum of 3 participants to make. If your class does not make, you will be rescheduled for the immediately following class, typically the following week.
