It’s simple to navigate Oberlin’s 440-acre campus, and many students, faculty, and staff choose to do so via bicycle. With bike racks in front of most buildings, it can be easy to make this type of commuting routine. During the January Winter Term, some of the bikes that transport individuals during fall semester are left waiting for warmer weather. The lone bicycle in the foreground of this image stands as a sentry on a path to Mudd Center library.
