Join Our Team

A team of dedicated students runs the system behind the scenes – from planning, finance, marketing, to its operation. Students that are part of the Big Red Bikes Team have the unique chance to impact Cornell’s campus as part of an innovative business practicing social entrepreneurship. Our interdisciplinary team works with the campus administration and student groups to serve nearly 3000 members of the Cornell Community while constantly expanding and improving our services.

We are looking for students to join our Administrative Team! Help us oversee our expansion plans and collaboration between four student teams and 25 team members. Contact Esther Kim at for details.

Adopt a Bicycle

Alumni can support our program by adopting one of our bicycles.  Your gift will support the expansion of a highly visible and popular bike share and will make an immediate impact on campus. As a token of appreciation, a message of your choice will be displayed on the sponsored bike.
