It's to the Right
Is it wrong to always be right? Absolutely not—if you are referring to your bicycle and how to ride your bicycle. The month of May was Bicycle Safety Month and there were plenty of events. However, in the month of May you may have not had an opportunity to get on the road on a bicycle. Whether you select a used bicycle to fix up, buy a new one or decide to bring out the bicycle you have not rode in years, you need to be right in so many ways: the right helmet to wear, the right bicycle size, the right braking system, the right hand signals, the right bike lock and even the direction on how to ride your bike safely on a two-lane road must be on the right.
There is a guide for bicyclists and while not meant to be a legal document or a substitute for the Michigan Vehicle code, this booklet is very handy and entitled, “What Every Michigan Bicyclist Must Know.” It can be downloaded: http://www.lmb.org/index.php/component/option,com_jdownloads/Itemid,204/cid,8/task,view.download/
Additionally, please remember if you have a bicycle on campus, it needs to be registered at the Office of Campus Safety. Registration of your bicycle is a means of loss prevention.
Andrews University policy requires the removal of all unregistered, inoperable or abandoned bicycles from the campus. The Office of Campus Safety will attempt to contact the registered owners; if the owners are not located it will be presumed that they have abandoned the property. Any unclaimed or abandoned bicycles not claimed within the 60 day holding period shall be disposed of.
Enjoy the road with just the right attitude!
The safety and security of our campus depends on everyone’s participation.
