The UW Bike Centre is closing (maybe for good). Here's why

Nearly the entire Fall 2021 Bike Centre exec team including both coordinators and mechanics have just quit. This may seem shocking, but here's some background.

Our founder started the Bike Centre in 1995 and had served us for 20 years. Back then, operations were good. The Bike Centre was under UW admin back then. WUSA (Feds back in the day) took over SLC, and slowly encroached upon the Bike Centre. They assumed full control in 2015 when our Founder "left" knowing that Feds wanted him out. The UW bike Centre was closed for 2 terms that year, with many people leaving. Some of the former volunteers returned, but major changes were made. An example is that WUSA didn't want grad students volunteering. The Bike Centre's affilation with the UW cycling club was cut off by FEDs as well, due to reasons I don't quite know myself.

History was bound to repeat itself. These past years, For customers, we tried to keep it as nice as we can and not have WUSA negatively impact our quality of service. However, this was not sustainable by any means. Bike Centre ran into issues nonstop, whether it be financial, operation, human resources, policy enforcement, or volunteer benefits. Some examples include giving our valued grad student volunteers/execs/customers a hard time, taking away a significant portion of the Bike Centre's revenue made from fixing, selling, and renting bikes, and providing inadequate funding to send more complex repairs to a professional bike shop, or to purchase tools, fluids, etc.

This all boiled over when WUSA tried to ban one of our most beloved volunteers from participating (due to a reason I will not disclose here). He had taught all of us the ins and outs of the Bike Centre, whether it's operations or repair. Additionally, they tried to get us to enforce that ban. We simply could not do that to our friend and colleague, so we quit. Not only is he a beloved volunteer but he is the only one who knows the bike centre like the back of his hand, and is the only one who knew how to fix our rental bikes properly (WUSA wouldn't give us enough budget to get them sent to a professional shop). WUSA says they will reopen the Bike Centre in two terms. I wish them good luck in finding new people for the Bike Centre. You can't sail a ship without its crew.

I give any future students interested in volunteering in the bike centre a warning in advance, so you know what you're getting yourselves into. Additionally, any posts/updates about the bike centre on the bike centre's social media are not being made by us, (the volunteers and execs), but WUSA.

EDIT: I found old posts from 6 years ago. apparently initially Feds had planned to shut down the bike centre for good.

I think I got scammed. Anyone live around MILL Street?

Hey,

I think I got scammed online. I am wondering if anyone lives around this street, if they'd be kind enough to do a quick walk or drive by if it's not too much out of their way?

Basically I ordered something, that's on a 9-12 week backorder from a non reputable store (my bad) and they're saying to wait around for it to ship (probably so my Paypal guarantee can lapse). I asked if I can pick it up locally if they have a local presence, and they said sure and gave me a address here, and a unit number.

Google shows residential area, with the house number not exactly there, but I don't know how old the google map picture is. I would really appreciate if someone who lives 3-5 minutes around would be kind enough to do a walk through to see if a business exists there, or what's going on.

Please post here or PM me, and I'll give you the exact address (#### Mill Street - UNIT ###, Kitchener).

Co-op 101 incident

Anyone knows what that email was about?

In case I wasn’t clear:

We were horrified and dismayed to learn about a racist act that occurred during the Co-op 101 information session for 2A Science students on Monday, September 13, 2021.

Waterloo condemns racism in all its forms. This includes the types of racist terms used during Monday’s virtual session. Please accept our heartfelt apology. We are investigating this matter and will take the necessary actions needed to discipline the perpetrators once they have been identified.

If you experienced or saw the racist words used by participants during this session, we acknowledge the serious harm that has taken place. We have resources available to support those who experience online harassment and bullying. Counselling Services has a counsellor for Black student support, Gillian Wells. We also encourage you to report any acts of racism you have experienced or witnessed to the Equity Office.

In Science, you can reach out to members of the Science Anti-Racism Taskforce. The taskforce has a form you can complete anonymously if you want to share feedback or information.

Students can also get peer support from RAISE and there are additional resources for BIPOC folks in our community on the HREI website. If you are affected by the incident, or by hearing about this incident, know that you are not alone, and there are people to help you.

The values upon which the University of Waterloo exists are founded on respect and inclusion. We are Canada's most innovative university because of our diversity, and we will continue to uphold values that foster respect among all campus community members.

We hope you will join us in our continued commitment to advancing inclusion and belonging for people of all races, national origins, and ethnicities.

Hi guys, I'm looking to take drivers ed in the very near future. Was wondering if anyone on here had specific schools they either recommend, or do not recommend for whatever reasons?

Any information you guys have regarding which schools in the region are best to use would be appreciated. I'm 24 years old, doing this later in life than a lot of people do, I'm not sure if there's a school that tailors to that.

Thanks in advance

SYDE or CE

If I wanted to strictly go into the software field (perhaps with some flexibility into DS), which one would be a better option? Currently in the Eng faculty, so it would be really difficult to switch into CS. With Systems, there are only two software courses in the entire curriculum, but it seems like the students get equally, if not better software positions than CE often. Is this due to their better human skills? It seems to me that the curriculum is way too broad, and students would probably have to spend a lot of time on their own gaining technical skills. However, even if CE does offer more software courses, how much do students even gain from them? Is it worth the trouble to grind through the difficult hardware and circuit courses?

Thank you for listening to my indecisive ass.

ON A GOOSE QUEST

Hi!

I have a bit of an odd request so please bare with me. My girlfriend really wanted one of those little plush geese from the W store but was not able to snag one in her first year due to the pandemic.

I went to the W store this week and there were no geese. Their listing on the website is now just a broken page. My girlfriend has not emotionally recovered from this.

She dreams of plush goose. She eats breakfast thinking of plush goose. She is more worried about graduating without finding a plush goose than she is about her test tomorrow even though she still has 2 years left.

Does anyone know what happened to the geese and if they will be back? Or does anyone have an extra goose I could buy off you?

Thank you for listening to my tale of tragedy and woe.

What is an appropriate number of forks and spoons?

When you ate at food places on campus like DC or V1, what was the appropriate number of utensils for a meal? Do you ever feel bad for taking 2 spoons when 1 spoon would have been sufficient?

I feel bad because one time I took 3 forks thinking I will be eating the meal throughout the day but I ended up only using 1 fork and throwing the other 2 forks out. What should I do?

Good parking lots to practice manual transmission

Not from around Kitchener but I need to teach my kid how to drive manual in the area.

Can anyone recommend some parking lots that would be empty this Sunday morning? They live downtown so anything in the area would be best.

fwiw - we're using the Car Talk method on concentrating on the clutch's friction point and less about the gas pedal. I'm hoping they'll start shifting between gears this weekend so we can get on the road proper shortly.

I was at Canna Cabana tonight (Sept 15) on King in Uptown and I saw you and complimented your outfit and we chatted super quickly about it being an English teacher fit. I ended the conversation with a gendered term and I realized I might have misgendered you.

If I did, I’m genuinely sorry! 100% my bad. If I didn’t, I just want to reiterate that your outfit was such a vibe.
