Over the past couple of weeks, I've heard that there have been some thefts from the bike sheds outside the maths department. Today, I had my speedometer stolen and an attempt at my mirror, which has prompted me to wonder about the security of the bike sheds.
How would it be possible to campaign for more secure bike sheds in campus. Would the university be willing to fix a CCTV cameras where bikes are locked up?
As it stands at the moment, next year, when I live on campus, my bike will be left in my room even though this is against "campus regulations".
K2L is a campaign for improved facilities for cyclists on the A452 between Kenilworth and Leamington. The campaign group would welcome more involvement from cyclists at the University (staff and students).
If you would like to get involved, the next meeting of the campaign group is on Thursday 26th May, at 7:30pm at the Baptist Church in Chandos Street, Leamington.
Alternatively, you may like to join the ride in support of the campaign, from Kenilworth to Leamington on Saturday 18th June. The ride will leave Abbey End in Kenilworth at 11:00am, heading for the Leamington Peace Festival, which starts that day. The ride is being organised as part of "Bike Week" and sponsorship forms are available for any riders who would like to combine supporting K2L and raising money for a cancer charity.
