Biking at Iowa

As part of its 2020 Vision, the UI is committed to reducing the carbon impact of transportation and is seeking 10% reduction in per capita emissions of fossil fuel-produced CO2 from University-related transportation and travel. One of the ways you can help reduce this impact is to bike to work or class. 

Biking at Iowa is an environmentally-friendly and healthy alternative to driving on campus. Whether it's commuting, competitive biking, or anything in between, Iowa is a great place to bike. The League of American Bicyclists has designated the University of Iowa as a Silver Bicycle Friendly University.
