Don't Bring a Bike Unless You Already Ride

Allegro TerranautApparently, Purdue University is tired of all the abandoned bikes on campus.

In a Journal & Courier article today, University Residences Administration Director Bob Heitert cautioned non-riders to leave their bikes at home:
He said the one item he discourages, unless students regularly use them already, is bicycles.

"If a student doesn't ride a bike regularly now, they're not going to start"
Well, they certainly won't if they don't have a bike to ride.

that's just silly. everyone bikes in Davis, CA - we have a lot of abandoned bikes too, but we also have a semi-annual bike auction that our Transportation and Parking Services puts on. it's a spectacular bike culture

Really, and those auctions are often the source of bikes for other students who need beater bikes for college.

That's a strange policy/request. I'm sure having so many unused bikes on campus can be a problem, but still ... come on!

They sell the left bikes at the Purdue Surplus store anyway. What is he complaining about?
