What is the institution’s current bicycle friendly award level? :
A brief description of the institution’s bicycle program, including the year the award was achieved and/or renewed:
Texas State was awarded a bronze medal by the Bicycle Friendly University (BFU) program in 2017. The Bike Cave is a central hub for all bicycle programs and questions on campus.
The Texas Transportation Commission had created a $4.5 million fund for bicycle and pedestrian projects in San Marcos, Liberty Hill, and Dripping Springs. San Marcos will receive around $3 million of that funding. The $3 million will fund a project consisting of a two-mile long, 10-foot wide path along the San Marcos River from the Hopkins Street Bridge to west of IH-35. Other improvements include a pedestrian bridge over Purgatory Creek, bike way signage, benches, trash receptacles, bike racks, and under crossing at Cheatham Street and Union Pacific Railroad.
