Although not expressed by the cyclists, some of the
future reasons for riding a bike to the Library might
be the possible increase in bus fares, continuing fuel
shortages, and limits to street parking on Capitol Hill.
On a typical day 20 spaces are taken by employees
by 9 a.m. but by 11 a.m. almost all of the other 75
spaces are occupied. Not everyone using the LC racks
is an employee or reader; some use the racks and walk
to the Folger Shakespeare Library or the U.S.

Bicycles reported stolen in the District of Columbia
during 1972 numbered 1,712 according to the Metro-

theft increased nationwide by 57 per cent from 1966
Francis E. Verrier, Head of the Protective Services
Section in the Buildings Management Office, has been
working on the problem of bicycle thefts with the
Metropolitan Police who have recorded a particular
increase in the number of thefts on Capitol Hill. Mr.
Verrier recommends that area cyclists purchase and
use the best bike chains and locks available.
Cyclists have found that the best place for a chain
is high off the ground where a young thief cannot
take advantage of leverage with a chain cutter. Also
the chain should be long enough to be placed through
the bike rack and through both wheels and the frame.
Some cyclists use two chains but one chain is suffi-
cient if it is 1/4 inch or larger of the case-hardened
"canmalloy" type with a similar size key-type padlock
having at least a 2 1/2 inch case. One cyclist using a
heavy chain does not always carry it while riding but
simply keeps it locked to the LC bik rack c~etright
or during the weekend.
Detachable items such as bags, tools, bells, air
pumps, dog repellents, water bottles, and straps
should be removed and taken inside the building to
prevent theft. Finally, bikes should be kept at the
racks where the policemen can keep a better watch
rather than at an unattended area.

tools. Tentative plans are being made for a supple-
ment to this course to be given at a later date.
