SLU Receives 'Bicycle Friendly University' Designation

St. Lawrence University received recognition from the League of American Bicyclists’ Bicycle Friendly University.

The League of American Bicyclists recognized St. Lawrence University with a bronze-level designation as a Bicycle Friendly University (BFU).

St. Lawrence has joined a group of colleges and universities across the United States that are working to transform their campuses and the communities around them. There are now 182 Bicycle Friendly Universities in 45 states and Washington, D.C.

St. Lawrence first launched its Green Bikes Program in 2004, allowing students, faculty and staff to loan out bikes during the spring, summer and autumn months. Due to a 2013 Innovation Grant, there are two bike “Fix-It & Go” stations situated outside of the Owen D. Young Library and the Launders Science Library in Madill Hall
