Colorado State University is aiming to become recognized as a premier Bike Friendly University, with a gold or platinum a rating given by the League of American Bicyclists.
Currently at silver status, awarded in 2011, Colorado State University is seeking consideration for a higher rating. The League of American Bicyclists evaluates university from across the nation each year.
The Bicycle Friendly University program recognizes university with infrastructure to support biking across and to campus, as well as universities that promote bicycling as a way to commute. Universities are evaluated for their bike share programs, educational efforts, and infrastructure to encourage biking, as well as bicycle safety enforcement.
“Colorado State University is proud of our accomplishments to make the campus more bicycle friendly since our application in 2011,” said Aaron Fodge, alternative transportation manager. “We hope to elevate our ranking to support our city’s ranking as a Platinum Bicycle Friendly City.”
As part of the application process, Colorado State students, faculty and alumni are invited to complete a survey to share information with the League in support of CSU’s application.
The survey will be open through Friday, Sept. 18. The input received through this survey will help inform the final award decision and will inform feedback that CSU will receive later this fall.
