The bike culture is a huge part of our Isla Vista community at the UCSB Campus. The supply of bike racks on the UCSB campus drastically underserves the demand. 

According to the UCSB Department of Public Safety, in an average day it is estimated that there are almost 20,000 bikes on campus. The installation of new bike racks will benefit each one of those bike users. While we are responsible for our bike locks and chains, Associated Students Bike Committee should ensure that we all have a sufficient amount of secure bike racks to lock our bikes. For ease of use and maximum security, the additional bike racks must enable bike users to lock their bike frame instead of just the one wheel. 

For an example of lack of supply, the bike racks outside Campbell Hall are the closest bike racks for Campbell Hall, Cheadle Hall, Ellison Hall and Buchanan Hall. Due to this, the racks are dangerously busy during peak school hours. The addition of bike racks on campus would decrease congestion and decrease the possibility for bike-related injury as well as allowing students to park closer to their destination, potentially preventing students and staff being late.
