Annual Campus Bicycle Cleanup May 30-31

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

If you are a student, faculty member or staff member who rides your bike to campus you will need to park your bike in the Axinn bike rack

ON MAY 30 AND MAY 31, 2012!

Facilities Services, with assistance from the Department of Public Safety, will be cutting locks and removing all bikes and lock devices from all of the other bike racks, as well as trees, stairwells, etc., on campus during those two days.

The bikes that are removed will be taken to a space designated by Public Safety. All removed lock devices will be discarded.

Thank you for your cooperation.
