Does the institution have indoor and secure bike storage, shower facilities, and lockers for bicycle commuters in at least one building?:

A brief description of the facilities:

Many of the student residence halls include indoor and secure bike storage for building residents only.

Students and employees have free access to showers and/or locker rooms at campus athletic and fitness facilities and some other university buildings. These facilities are not provided specifically for bike commuters, but are available to, and do benefit, bike commuters.

Cornell Green Building Guidelines include Site Strategy SS-4.2: Encourage Bicycle Use, with Baseline Performance Goals that require site and building access by bicycle, bike accommodations in new access roads, connecting to existing bike lanes and paths, university standard bike racks within specified distance from entrances. High Performance Goals include covered bike parking and interior shower facilities for bike commuters.

Installation of bicycle racks is now standard practice with new buildings construction and with major rehabilitation projects. At least two building projects underway will be providing covered bicycle parking as well.
