SALT LAKE CITY — A cycling organization has recognized the University of Utah as a "silver" bicycle-friendly university.
The decision involved a review by the League of American Bicyclists and local judges who are familiar with the university and its peer institutions. According to the organization's website, a bicycle-friendly community welcomes cyclists by providing safe accommodation for cycling and encouraging people to bike for transportation and recreation.
The designation will last four years before the university must reapply to maintain or improve its status. The university already has plans to expand bicycle parking areas, offer bicycle valets at more university events, bolster its bicycle rental program and to develop more bicycle paths and routes.
