Bicycle Friendly status awarded to University of Iowa, 2017 - 2021

November 9, 2017

The League of American Bicyclists recognized the University of Iowa for the second time with a Silver Bicycle Friendly University (BFU) award. The University of Iowa is the only university in Iowa to earn the Bicycle Friendly University designation.

With the announcement of 46 new and renewing BFUs, the University of Iowa is among a cutting-edge group of colleges and universities across the United States that are transforming their campuses and the communities around them. There are now 182 Bicycle Friendly Universities in 45 states and Washington, D.C.

“Parking for vehicles is in high demand, so providing amenities and assisting persons in choosing bicycling as a transportation mode just makes sense” added Michelle Ribble, commuter programs manager at UI Parking and Transportation. 

The UI will maintain its award through 2021. To see a list of all current BFUs and a list of 2017 awardees, visit the League online at www.bikeleague.org/university, which also describes the application process and award criteria.
