Belknap changes accommodate more cyclists
Greg Curtis (left) and Jerry Pellman of VCI Construction Co. install a bike rack in front of The Ville Grille, one 66 new racks going in on Belknap Campus this fall. UofL’s Sustainability Council is paying for the racks with funds allocated for the university’s Climate Action Plan.
The new racks will accommodate a total of 432 bikes, said Justin Mog, assistant to the provost for sustainability initiatives.
Workers also are installing five “fix-it stations” (see photo) offering bike tools and air pumps for campus cyclists at the Humanities Quad, Belknap bus station, two Student Activities Center locations and Kornhauser Plaza at the Health Sciences Center.
Starting this fall, anyone with a UofL ID can check out a bike with helmet and lock for free from the Intramurals and Recreational Sports gym in the Student Activities Center, Mog said.
