Yes

A brief description of the plan:

Agnes Scott College encourages students to use their bicycles in and around campus by offering bike racks across campus. Additional racks were added over the past several years to service all residence halls and major academic buildings. There is also covered bicycle storage located on the ground floor of the parking deck. In order to ensure everyone on campus has access to a bicycle Agnes Scott has a bike check-out program for students to check out bikes to ride around campus or the surrounding area.
The layout of Agnes Scott’s campus is conducive to bike riding as there is no thru-traffic allowed on the main campus. The only way to get the main buildings on campus is by pathway or walkway which is only accessible to pedestrians and bicyclists.
Agnes Scott will also be incorporating an official Bike Plan into the campus master plan that is currently being developed. In order to help facilitate this plan being developed we have taken an inventory of all bike racks on campus and surveyed the campus community on what improvements could be made to make biking to and around campus easier. In developing this plan Agnes Scott will work closely with the City of Decatur, which already has already developed a city wide bike plan, to develop goals to create a bike friendly campus.
