615 New Bike Registrations

University of Maryland has 615 new bike registrations this year! This is a 220% increase over last year! Hopefully this means that there are more people looking to ditch their cars on campus. I keep a bike in my office and people keep looking at me like I am crazy but maybe one of them will try it soon. I get too and from meetings a lot faster than by car. Especially since parking is at such a premium.

615 new registrations blows my conservative goal out of the water. I want to encourage people to keep registering. These numbers will help us to make credible requests for new racks and other services that help bikers.

I am going to put out a new survey. The question is, would you join a Bicycle Commuter Club? What I mean is would you like an area with showers and maybe some coffee to be put in near the bike shop?
