There are 220 campuses in our country designated as bicycle friendly universities. SUNY Cortland is one of them and as the weather improves, watch for more bicycles.
The announcement was a renewal of SUNY Cortland’s bronze status with the organizations, first awarded in 2017. Cortland is one of only two SUNY University Colleges, including SUNY Brockport, to receive the designation.
“This is important to us,” President Erik J. Bitterbaum said. “Bicycles represent our commitment to healthy living, physical fitness and environmental sustainability, all of which are core SUNY Cortland values.”
The Bicycle Friendly University program evaluates colleges and universities efforts to promote bicycling in five key areas: engineering, encouragement, education, equity and evaluation and planning.
Bronze-level universities have displayed an above-average number of campus community members and tend to be particularly strong in at least one of these five categories.
