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:

The Roger B. Gatewood Addition facilitates bicycling as a commuting option by providing two shower facilities, as well as lockers and changing areas. This building meets the requirements of LEED Sustainable Sites Credit 4.2: Bicycle Storage and Changing Rooms. Thirty-four secure bicycle racks are located within 12 yards of the building entrance, and there are many other secure bicycle storage areas slightly farther from the building.

A semiannual audit of campus bicycle racks has been conducted since 1998 to determine bicycle rack capacity vs. use. Latest audit showed 61% of overall capacity was available for use.
