The college has a 30-year-old bicycle parking policy that says no bikes in the middle part of the campus. Is that bike friendly? It certainly does not encourage sustainable transportation or healthy lifestyle. The bike racks are in the parking lot and one is next to portable classrooms. That certainly does not encourage faculty, staff or students to use bicycles as transportation.
This is what was on my bike when I parked my bike under cover on a rainy day. The bike was not in anyone’s way. The Peg Studio does not have a bike parking rack. The correct location would be the Student Services Building parking lot.
Come to the Mayfield Library and check out our “Bicycles as Transportation” exhibit.
