Has the institution developed a bicycle plan?:

A brief description of the plan:

ISU and the City of Ames have collaborated to develop a series of bicycle trails and paths that provide connectivity for cyclists throughout the community and within the university. The trail network consists of separate trails, shared use trails, and bicycle friendly streets. Bicycle parking is located throughout campus near university residences as well as throughout the academic areas of campus. CyRide, the community transit, provides for bike friendly buses as well. The student body funded the installation of a bike pump service area.
