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 1,250 members, encourages and promotes bicycle commuting to and from campus. Club Members receive reduced cost or free helmets, free occasional use parking permits, free shower and locker access at the UCSD Main Gym, safety training information, Zipcar carsharing credits, and emergency ride home program access. A pilot program bicycle cage at the UC San Diego Hillcrest Medical Center provides access to secure bicycle parking within a covered parking garage and is accessible by registered proximity cards to its electronic door lock. Hillcrest is not currently in the boundaries defined for the survey.
UC San Diego has bicycle locking racks and storage throughout campus at numerous buildings to facilitate riding convenience. The Warren College apartment complex has bicycle lock and storage sites with overhangs and covers.
UC San Diego encourages students, staff, and faculty to bike to campus as an alternative to driving. For users interested in trial bicycle riding, UC San Diego transforms bikes abandoned at UC San Diego into a convenient and free on-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.
