one of the big obstacles to riding a bike to campus is security. How can you assure that your bike will not be stolen or vandalized? With many security and parking personnel patrolling the campus, most high-visibility areas are safe, but incidents do still occur.
To help, a new bike barn will open this fall. The Bike Barn is a special fenced-off segment of the Brady parking garage that can store 65 bicycles on special racks. Students, faculty and staff can park their bikes away from inclement weather and under the watchful eye of security cameras. The gated entryway can only be activated by those who have signed up for the service through the parking office.
Cost is $15 per semester. Call the Transportation and Parking Services Office at 426-7275.
