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:
UCSC submitted an application during Spring 2014 and was certified by League of American Bicyclists (LAB) at the Silver level on October 22, 2014. UC Santa Cruz encourages bicycling and provides amenities such as free bike safety classes, bike maintenance clinics, bike fix-it stations, and bike licensing; a variety of bike parking options, including smart bike lockers; a bike lending library; a bike shuttle from two off-campus locations; and a zero-interest bike loan for academic and staff employees. The UCSC bike program also conducts a Bicycle Safety Campaign twice each year to educate cyclists about safe cycling techniques; helmets and bike lights are distributed free of charge to participants who don’t currently have them.
