Can too many bikes be too much of a good thing?
The Minnesota Daily reports that bike congestion has gotten so bad in the University of Minnesota area that a crackdown on cyclists is underway.
Biking on the sidewalk will get you fined $98, and the school is looking into ways to limit bike parking.
The number of cyclists on campus rose 13 percent, or 1,000 bikes, this year, according to a University-wide email from Vice President Pam Wheelock. The congestion is compounded by Green Line light rail construction that reroutes bikers from Washington Avenue onto campus.
