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 UC San Diego Pedal Club, which has over 250 members, encourages and promotes bicycle commuting to and from campus. Club Members receive free helmets, free occasional use parking permits, free shower and locker access, safety training, Zipcar membership, and emergency rides home.

UC San Diego encourages students, staff, and faculty to bike to campus as an alternative to driving. UC San Diego transforms bikes abandoned at UC San Diego into a convenient and free campus transportation alternative. The refurbished bikes emerge bright yellow, sporting a Triton Bikes logo and equipped with wire baskets and locks. Departments or campus organizations can host Triton Bikes for the exclusive use of their members.
