On this crisp autumnal morning, the BYU bike racks were still packed with bicycles. Here’s a glimpse of a few of the bike racks around campus and their capacity.
A local bike activist and student passed out these fliers around campus and had the opportunity to meet with Carri Jenkins (Assistant to President Samuelson). There are currently 6,000 bike slots and they are currently in the process of locating more places for bike racks. In comparison, there are 7,142 Y-Lot parking spaces for cars on campus.
BYU has pledged to put up more bike racks, and here is a photo of one of the new locations with 100 new slots for bikes (between the JSB, MCKB, and the Brimhall).
And last but not least, my favorite bike related BYU sign:
This is on a fence on 800 N near the duck pond. I can’t wait to see them tow a bike like that. And the detail in the bike: water bottle, de-railer, they mean business.
