The good times on two wheels keep rolling on campus. The League of American Bicyclists has once again bestowed on UCLA its Gold-level Bicycle Friendly University award for making biking a breeze for Bruins, with resources that include programs, classes, ample racks and lockers for parking, DIY repair stands, commuting benefits, incentives for riding, and a campus bike advisory committee.
The Bicycle Friendly University program recognizes higher education institutions for promoting and providing a more bikeable campus for students, faculty, staff and visitors. To be designated a bike-friendly university, a school must demonstrate that it offers bike lanes and other infrastructure and programs that encourage easy riding, education, enforcement, and evaluation and planning.
UCLA was one of the original 20 U.S. campuses to be named a Bicycle Friendly University when the award was created in 2011. Since then, UCLA has continued to improve bicycle infrastructure and amenities.
