Nazareth College and the University of Rochester were recognized Monday with Bicycle Friendly University awards by the League of American Bicyclists.
The schools are on the 2015 list of 49 new and renewed bicycle friendly universities from 31 states, bringing the total to 127 campuses in 42 states, and Washington, D.C, officials said.
“From bike storage inside dorm rooms to bicycle-powered music festivals, we applaud this round of BFUs for raising the standard of what a bicycle-friendly campus looks like," said Amelia Neptune, program manager.
The Nazareth College Bike Project is a collaborative effort between Student Activities and Greenprint@Naz in which the college aims to increase environmental efforts and provide a healthy means of transportation across campus. Nazareth College encourages bicycling as an easy option for transportation and provides incentives such as rentals free to all students, faculty and staff on a daily basis.
Rochester Institute of Technology was recognized in 2012 by the league and is on the list of current bicycle friendly universities.
