Bicycle Friendly Campus
Whether you are biking to the IU South Bend campus for class, bringing your bike along to campus via Transpo city bus, cycling through as part of Bike the Bend or other area bike rides, IU South Bend offers a convenient location and easy pedalling access to parks, stores, shopping, restaurants, downtown South Bend, and more!
The benefits of bicycling are far-reaching, including helping the environment by reducing carbon emissions, saving money, reducing congestion, optimizing space, improving health and enhancing campus quality of life. South Bend has been designated a Bicycle Friendly City, and IU South Bend is in the process of applying for designation as a Bicycle Friendly University.
What is a Bicycle Friendly University?
The Bicycle Friendly University program promotes active and sustainable colleges and universities. The League of American Bicyclists awards Bicycle Friendly University designations at the Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum level and acknowledges institutions of higher education that are close to becoming bicycle friendly, but still have some room to grow, with an Honorable Mention.
