Why Are We Promoting Bikes?
Biking is good for your health, it's good for your pocket and it's good for the environment. Of all the alternatives to single-occupant vehicle transportation, bikes are the easiest, fastest, most efficient, and cheapest way to get to and from campus.
Campus Bike Committee
The bike committee is a group of Auburn University faculty, staff, and students who are dedicated to increasing bike usage and facilities on campus through education, planning, and event coordinating.
The goals of the bike committee are:
1. Convenient access
to central campus for bikes
Bike paths that parallel pedestrian walkways OR
Bike paths that are independent of pedestrian walkways but lead to same destination
Bicycle loop that allows travel around the core campus pedestrian zone and permits faster travel
If you would like to participate on the bike committee, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org

Design Considerations for the University
Complete bike loop around core campus
Get bike parking as close to buildings as possible
Separate bike paths/pedestrians/automobiles
Space for 6-10 bikes at every building (min) or every entrance (max)
Several large covered storage areas
Sufficient bike racks to accommodate peak bike traffic on campus at convenient locations
Shelters provided at several strategically placed large storage areas
3. Bike shop in new Student
Center and air pumps at several locations around campus.
4. University wide education
of students, faculty, and staff about bike safety and use.
