Biking is a convenient, healthy, environmentally friendly, and low-cost way to travel to and around campus.
The University of Pittsburgh is one of 222 colleges and universities affiliated with The League of American Bicyclists. Currently, we hold the League’s Silver Bicycle-Friendly University Designation (BFU) for our work in promoting and enabling safe, accessible bicycling on campus. Recent initiatives include the transformation of Bigelow Boulevard to create a complete street with separated bike lanes, our 3-year partnership with POGOH (formerly Healthy Ride), and our growing Bike to Campus Week! We are committed to improving upon our current BFU status and are aiming to achieve Gold BFU status by 2025. We are working to improve our BFU status through our future bike education program run by Pitt’s first League Cycling Instructors and continuing to expand our bike parking options across campus.
