Biking

Bicycling is a proven sustainable form of transportation, and we, at the University of Illinois atbfu_Silver_2019 Urbana-Champaign, strongly encourage our students, faculty, staff, and visitors to utilize the bicycle infrastructure available on campus. As of October 2019, our campus can accommodate up to 11,635 bicycles, and nearly all campus buildings have a bike rack within 150 feet. With the introduction of a bike share program, investment in campus bike infrastructure, Bike at Illinois, MCORE project, and other bicycle-related features, we have achieved Silver-level Bicycle Friendly University (BFU) certification from the League of American Bicyclists (LAB). Read more about our achievement in the F&S news announcement: Illinois Promoted to a Silver Bicycle Friendly University.
