Florida State University is excited to continue to be recognized as a Silver-level Bicycle Friendly University by the League of American Bicyclists!

FSU joins an elite group of 212 colleges and universities in 47 states and the District of Columbia that are taking action to address the health and environmental challenges facing America by creating campuses more welcoming to people who bike.

“It is so energizing to have Florida State University among our cohort of 212 Bicycle Friendly Universities across the country,” said Bill Nesper, executive director of the League of American Bicyclists. “The 2020 class of 38 Bicycle Friendly Universities has addressed a crisis unlike any we’ve seen in our lifetimes. Amidst the pandemic, we are grateful each of these institutions has acknowledged the benefits to the well-being and health of its students, staff, and faculty in being a Bicycle Friendly University. These colleges and universities are leading by building healthy environments where people can safely get around while improving the well-being of their community by enabling access to sustainable transportation options.” 

Sustainable Campus and FSU Transportation & Parking Services have partnered together to create a bicycle-friendly campus with programs such as the FSU reCycle Bike Program and the CyclingSavvy course. Visit transportation.fsu.edu/bicycles to learn more about biking around campus!
