Bike Path?

leave a comment »

As many of you are well aware, the area around Bunce Hall has been undergoing some pretty heavy construction the past few weeks. While I was out for a stroll about campus this evening, I decided why not check out how the progress is coming along. Everything looked pretty ship-shape until I noticed something a little strange out of the corner of my eye. Along the side of Bunce (near the baseball field) there is a new walkway, that of which half of is dedicated solely to bicyclers. This walkway is literally 50 feet long, and runs just up that one side of the building. It doesn’t even wrap around it or anything. Is there really a need to dedicate half of it to those on a bike? How many bikers do we even have on campus? On top of that, this is the only part of campus that even has a bike path, so what is the point? To my knowledge, bikers were just fine sharing the sidewalks with walkers, joggers, runners, etc. Did something happen I am unaware of? Was there some biker protest that I missed?

If they are going to put a bike path here, they should do one throughout the entire campus, or it really isn’t going to make any difference. Now, I am in no way saying Rowan should put a bike path around the whole campus, because it would be a waste of time and money. Nobody is going to abide by the rules. As if public safety is going to hand out tickets to people walking on the half of the walkway designated to bikers. Please.
