About the Big Red Bike Program 

Big Red Bikes is a GreenToppers project and is housed by the Office of Sustainability and receives funding support from the Parents Advisory CouncilDepartment of Parking and Transportation and the Outdoor Recreation and Activities Center.

•In 2011, Big Red Bikes received the Paula Nye Memorial Education Grant from the Kentucky Bicycle and Bikeways Commission with funds generated from the “Share the Road” license plates, which allowed for significant upgrade to the mechanic shop and expansion of the program. The grant was written by WKU Alum and past Big Red Bikes Coordinator, Nick Asher. 

•In 2013, Big Red Bikes received a second grant from the Paula Nye Memorial Education Fund from the Kentucky Bicycle and Bikeways Commision.  Funds are generated from the "Share the Road" licence plates.  This grant was used for expanding the mechanic shop, getting awareness out about bicycling, and installing two fix-it bike stations on campus.  The grant was written by WKU student and Big Red Bikes Coordinator, Madonna L. May.

•Big Red Bikes have installed two bike fix-it stands on the WKU campus.  One is located at south campus off Campbell Lane, and the other is located at the Creason Lot.  Both stations are near BG Greenways and are ready for use! The bike stations were made possible with funds from the Paula Nye Memorial Grant.
