Spring feels like it’s been a little late to start this year, but pleasant weather, perfect for biking around campus, is just around the corner. Michigan State University was named a Silver Level Bicycle Friendly University by the League of American Bicyclists last November, and seasonal bikers now have the opportunity to test out the university’s new status while zooming down MSU’s streets and bike lanes.
In order to assist other campuses, communities and business with achieving a bicycle-friendly status, MSU will host the Bicycle Friendly America Conference on Thursday, May 19, 2016, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Kellogg Center. There will be presenters from the League of American Bicyclists, the League of Michigan Bicyclists, the State of Michigan, other universities (including the Platinum level University of Minnesota), as well as Michigan State University and local communities and businesses.
Register by April 15 to for a reduced fee.
