(Nov 9/12) I bike to campus every day, and most days will spend a good amount of time studying in Thode. Ive noticed that finding a spot to lock my bike is nearly impossible. I think it would be very helpful to add more bike racks to the area outside of Thode to accommodate for the amount of study space available. Ive locked my bike outside and a number of times have come back to see my bike crushed underneath 3 or 4 others trying to get thier bike locked to the rack. I think that by adding 1 or 2 more bike racks right outside the library entrance it would reduce the amount of congestion at the one bike rack.
Thanks for the suggestion. I will pass it along to the Office of Sustainability who is responsible for the placement of bike racks on campus.
