Has the institution developed a bicycle plan?:

A brief description of the plan:
The Master Plan calls for integrating “a strong pedestrian pathway and bikeway system into existing circulation corridors” (page 35). The planned routes for the bike paths are depicted in maps in the Master Plan. An important step was taken in spring 2011 with the creation of bike lanes on High Street, which bisects campus and is one of two main thorough fares in Carlisle, and on Hanover Street, which is near to campus and is the other main thorough fare in Carlisle. The bike lanes are part of Carlisle’s Road Diet, a project that Dickinson helped to promote. The college is working with community partners to develop the network of existing bike paths in the region to connect our campus and Carlisle with the College Farm and the Cumberland Valley Rail-Trail.
