Oberlin in January means a mix of winter weather conditions, from powdery snow to freezing rain that coats tree branches and sidewalks. Winter weather— whatever form it takes— is not a deterrent for many students, faculty, and staff who prefer to navigate the 440-acre campus via bicycle. With bike racks in front of most buildings, it’s easy to make this type of commuting routine.
During the January winter term, some bikes used during fall semester are left waiting for icicles to melt and clear walkways to emerge. This lone icicle-covered red bicycle stands as a sentry on a path to the main library, which remains open for those who are on campus.
