BICYCLING at the U
Bicycling is a convenient, healthy, and sustainable way to arrive at your campus destination. Bicycling as a primary form of transportation helps reduce our negative impact on the environment, is an excellent form of exercise, and could save money that would otherwise be spent on gas and vehicle parking.
The University of Utah is a Gold Bicycle Friendly University ranked by the League of American Bicyclists.
