Gary Lader indicates he wants to start using a Bicycle Library Bike.  He wants to complete his TS101 class and his basic mechanic class.  Because Gary, a regular bike commuter, has been coming into the BBC for some time, going on rides with the instructors and learning about mechanics, Steve decides to let him start using the Bianchi hybrid Gary wants to try.
