[News] What if the UI did this?

Instead of paving over yet another lawn for parking, the University of Rochester starts a program for students to 'check out' a bicycle to use. Makes sense. As the costs of auto ownership and operation continue to rise, expect to see more students realizing it's just not worth it to drive to campus.

Also, President White take note; the principal of Decatur High School is making a statement by biking to and from work. Weird quote in the news story from a student though...

"A principal is supposed to be this tough guy, and here he is riding his bike to class. I could only imagine him parking it in the bicycle rack."

Uh, doesn't getting around using your muscle power demonstrate a level of 'toughness' that beats sitting on your ass while pressing a gas pedal? Strange...
