Bikes impounded for Obama visit will be returned Wednesday

Students that left bikes at the Clark building on Monday will have to take a trip to the police station to get them back.


To secure the area surrounding the Monfort Quad, the CSU Police Department moved all of the bike racks between Clark A and Clark C on Monday evening, cutting the locks of all bikes left attached to the racks.

The police had posted notices of the removal on Sunday afternoon and had originally intended to begin moving bikes at 5 p.m. Since many bikes remained when the police arrived, they waited until 6 p.m. to begin cutting locks, according to Lieutenant Frank Johnson.

Owners of impounded bikes can pick them up, free of charge, at the police station at 750 Meridian Ave. on Wednesday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Anyone looking for a bike must provide proof of ownership, such as bike registration or purchase receipts.

The celebration culminates with Carr’s speech Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at the Hilton Fort Collins on Prospect Road.
