"Thirty dollars for a whole year sounds remarkable to me.”
My guess is that Adam doesn’t cycle to school. If he did he would know that there are barely six months in the year when biking (pedal or motor) to school is feasible. And those are months when the fewest students attend U of C.
I appreciate SU’s efforts to protect our precious bikes, but let’s be realistic about the charges. Personally, I would rather pay $30 for a good lock and park my bike in a more convenient spot.
