The League of American Bicyclists announced 51 new and renewing Bicycle Friendly Universities, and Georgia had an exceptionally strong showing with three major institutions joining or moving up the ranks.
“In its fifth year, we’ve seen the Bicycle Friendly University program’s momentum continue to grow and reach even more campuses across the country,” said Bill Nesper, [League] Programs Director. “We applaud this round of BFUs for raising the standard and being innovative in making bicycling a safe, convenient and enjoyable option for students, staff and visitors alike.”
Congratulations to Georgia Tech, our state's first Gold-level Bicycle Friendly University!
Big high five to Emory University for moving from Bronze to Silver, and we're glad to see our state's flagship institution, the University of Georgia, recognized at the Bronzelevel.
Goooo Jackets, Eagles and Dawgs!
Kudos also to Columbus State University for receiving an Honorable Mention. We look forward to your Bronze award in the near future!
