FM Bike Training

FM Weekly Communication 22 SEPTEMBER 2022 - Issue 164

Facilities E-BikeGreetings FM Team,

Did you know Facilities Management has an E-bike you can use to get around CSU for work needs or meetings? There are three standard bikes that are available to FM employees as well. If you are curious about using any of these bikes, where to find them or how to reserve them,  then please register for this exclusive training specific for FM employees offered on October 11, 12:30-1:30 p.m.

Learn to:

  • Reserve the FM Fleet bikes for campus use
  • Get the most out of an E-bike
  • Fit a helmet
  • Conduct a pre-ride safety check
  • Lock the bikes properly
  • Safely ride around campus

The E-bike has multiple speeds and maneuvers slightly different from a standard bike. The downhill momentum when riding the E-bike from south campus to main campus, for instance, is probably faster than you realize. FM project manager Zack Kulbeck recently used the E-bike to get around to his different projects on main campus. “As you peddle it kicks in the extra inertia, but it’s a heavy bike, so make sure you allow plenty of room and time to stop. It doesn’t stop on a dime.”

This training will occur outdoors and in person at the covered bike parking shelter, southwest corner of FM North building. Registration is required to attend: Please register at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e4da8a82aaaf4cf8-rsvp

Sincerely,

Tom Satterly
Associate Vice President for Facilities Management

Capacitación de Bicicletas de FM

Comunicación Semanal de FM - 22 SEPTIEMBRE 2022 - Edición 164

Facilities E-BikeEstimado Equipo de FM,

¿Sabía usted que Facilities Management tiene una bicicleta eléctrica (E-bike) que puede utilizar como transporte en CSU para las necesidades de trabajo o reuniones? También hay tres bicicletas estándar disponibles para los empleados de FM. Si tiene curiosidad sobre el uso de cualquiera de estas bicicletas, dónde encontrarlas y cómo reservarlas, por favor regístrese para esta capacitación exclusivamente para empleados de FM, que tendrá lugar el 11 de octubre, 12:30 a 1:30 p.m.

Aprenda a:

  • Reservar las bicicletas de FM para uso en el campus
  • Sacar el máximo provecho de un e-bike
  • Ajustar correctamente su casco
  • Hacer una revisión de seguridad antes de usar una bici
  • Bloquear correctamente con candado una bici
  • Montar una bici con seguridad en el campus

La bicicleta eléctrica (E-bike) tiene múltiples velocidades y se maneja diferente a una bicicleta estándar. La velocidad cuesta abajo al montar la bicicleta eléctrica desde el campus sur al campus principal, por ejemplo, probablemente será más rápida de lo que prevé. El gerente de proyectos de FM, Zack Kulbeck, recientemente utilizó el E-bike para transportarse a una variedad de proyectos en el campus principal. “Al pedalear agrega inercia extra, pero es una bicicleta pesada, así que asegúrese de permitir suficiente espacio y tiempo para detenerse. No se detiene rápidamente.”

Esta capacitación se realizará a la intemperie y en persona en el albergue para bicicletas en la esquina suroeste del edificio FM Norte. Deberá registrarse para asistir: Por favor regístrese en: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e4da8a82aaaf4cf8-rsvp

Atentamente,

Tom Satterly
Vicepresidente Asociado de Facilities Management
