The Georgia Tech campus is frequently lauded as a friendly place for cyclists, even being named a silver-level Bicycle Friendly University by the League of American Bicyclists last year.
With a growing number of cyclists on campus and May being National Bike Month, now is a good time to be reminded of safety measures all cyclists can take to enhance the safety of themselves, those around them and their equipment.
Last week, the Atlanta City Council approved $2.5 million in funding for bicycle projects during the next two years – many of which will directly border or feed into Georgia Tech’s campus.
The Bicycle Infrastructure Improvement Committee, in partnership with Capital Planning and Space Management, released the campus' first Bike Suitability Map this fall.
The map highlights paths of low, medium and high difficulty, as well as campus multi-use paths. It also provides information on Georgia bicycling laws so cyclists can obey the rules of the road. Download or view the map online (pdf).
With the end of another school year and as members move on from Georgia Tech, the Bicycle Infrastructure Improvement Committee (BIIC) seeks new student representatives to contribute their efforts to improving the bicycle climate of campus.
