Winter Bike Storage Starts Nov 10

From Facilities Management: It is time to move all bikes into the winter bike storage areas.  This is necessary for snow removal through the winter. Bikes must be moved so they will not be crushed by snow plows or by the piles of ice and snow. Permanent winter bike storage is available for students.

Bikes that are abandoned and left in other locations will be removed beginning on Monday, Nov. 10, at 8 a.m. Please move your bikes.
