ployee of Tumbleweed Cyclery, cy
cling is a popular sport in the Chapel
Hill area. "There are so many bike
shops in this area," he said. "As ath
letic fitness and recreation, people in
this area are looking to cycling.
"Right now, the emphasis is on
exercise, with commuting as a plus.
The fitness aspect has grown a lot
since the 1984 Olympics, which gen
erated a lot of publicity for cycling."
Ken Punnell, floor supervisor at
Performance Bicycle Shop, said the
Triangle area is good for cycling. "We
have pretty good roads here, but driv
ers here are not as aware of cyclers
as they are out west," he said.
Mike Boone, manager of Pedal
Power, said he had seen a lot of rid
ers in the two-plus years he has been
in business. UNC students and fac
ulty use cycling as a means of com
muting to campus, he said.
Most bike shop employees said
they recommended an all-terrain bike
for students. "They're safer, more
comfortable and very sturdy," Boone
Prices at Tumbleweed Cyclery
range from about $200 up to $2,000,
with the more expensive bikes more
similar to racing bikes, Hafer said.
According to campus police, stu
dents should register their bicycles at
the police station in the security serv
ices building next to Morrison Resi
dence Hall, or at any local police or
fire station. When the bike is regis
tered, a permanent registration num
ber is stamped on the bike, and a
decal warns that the bike is regis
tered with local authorities.
As further protection against theft,
police advise students to park their
bikes in well-lighted locations, and
to buy a good lock, locking both
wheels as well as the frame of the
