UT Dallas’ Bicycle Friendly Mission

As a bicycle-friendly university, UT Dallas cultivates an environment that provides safe accommodation for cycling and encourages students, staff, and visitors to enjoy cycling on campus. Cycling is a cost-efficient and zero-emission form of transportation that helps us reduce our carbon footprint. UT Dallas has approximately 960 bicycle racks, 8 bicycle repair stations, and various well-being routes on-campus. Our mission is to embrace enthusiasm for the alternative mode of transportation and inspire more action to build a healthy, sustainable, and livable UT Dallas.

Bicycle Friendly University Well-Being Routes

Use our new BFU [Bicycle Friendly University] Well-Being Routes (PDF [Portable Document Format File] ) to map your way around campus. These routes are designed to avoid high-traffic areas and stay off of sidewalks, which could put you and others in danger of a collision, while passing by some of the most iconic and relaxing sustainability spots on campus. Remember to signal turns, wear a helmet, and check your tire air, brakes, and chain before every ride!
