Bicycles Welcome Here

The first annual Bike to Mason Day got a good plug in The Mason Gazette article entitled Bicycles Welcome Here: Campus Culture Adapts to ‘Greener’ Mode of Transportation. We've been helping plan the event, which is scheduled for Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22, 2008. As we said in the article, there is a great potential for cycling to and on the George Mason University campus. The campus Transportation Department is fully supporting the growth of bicycling to relieve the parking and traffic problems, and to help reduce the university's carbon footprint.

For cycling to grow, we need more and better bike facilities to allow students to safely get to campus on bike. Charlie Strunk, the county bike coordinator, is working toward that end, with a goal of increasing the number of bike lanes from 10 to 100 in the next 5 years.

We're optimistic that during Bike to Mason Day many GMU students, faculty, and staff will discover the benefits of biking to campus.
