The League of American Bicyclists has just recently recognized Oregon State University as a Gold-level Bicycle Friendly University. OSU is one of only 12 institutions that have achieved this high level of honor.
According to league standards, gold-level indicates that OSU has implemented bike projects, policies, and programs to connect transportation and recreation throughout the community and that a strong commitment to cycling is demonstrated.
OSU is one of 127 Bike Friendly Universities within the United States. The only level higher is platinum, which only five universities have achieved as of 2015.
Both the bike-friendly nature within Corvallis and OSU’s easily accessible bike resources (such as covered and uncovered bike parking, bike lockers, bike fix-it stands, an on-campus bike shop, a bike loan program, bicycle safety training, and bicycle registration services) have helped Oregon State University to receive this honor.
