A&M Is Texas' Newest Bicycle Friendly University

Texas A&M University is renowned for its school spirit and many traditions. After this week, the Aggies can add one more tradition to the list: being a great place to ride a bike.

maroon bikes cats biketexas bicycle educationThe League of American Bicyclists announced the latest round of Bicycle Friendly Universities on November 5, and A&M entered the list for the first time with a Bronze-level award. A&M joins Texas Tech University and the University of Texas at Austin as Texas' three bike-friendly universities. Together, these three schools serve over 145,000 students from across Texas and around the world.

Promoting bicycling and walking on (and to and from) campus is ideal for colleges and universities. Why? Active transportation solves parking problems; allows students to make smart economic choices; addresses sustainability and air quality concerns; and encourages active, safe, and healthy lifestyles for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The healthy habits students pick up in their college years can stay with them for life.

Congratulations, Texas A&M, and thanks for making Texas a great place to ride a bike!
