New U-Lock or U Lose Posters
With bicycle theft an ongoing (and for some areas a growing) issue for schools throughout Eugene and Springfield, we're on a mission to make things better. South Eugene High School was even ranked as the #1 theft location in Eugene and we want to do something about that! One way we can do this is through education. We've created a new poster to show students, in a clear and direct way, how to properly lock up their bikes. Last year we also created the School Bike Parking Assessment Tool which not only created a resource for schools around the country but it also helped us identify a local need and find sponsorship to bring dozens of new racks to our area schools. We continue to work with all three local school districts to improve our bike parking for students, aiming to have safe, accessible, and secure parking that is inviting to students and discouraging to thieves. Watch for these posters in the coming weeks! A special thank you to University of Oregon Housing for adapting their graphics for us!
