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:
UNL was awarded the silver level distinction from the League of American Bicylists in 2013. UNL's Outdoor Adventure Center provides bicycle repair opportunities, access to 24-hour end-of-commute shower facilities and bike locker storage. The University is also working on a new master plan, which will include multi-modal transportation priorities and projections for new bike infrastructure.
One of the goals of the Bicycle Transportation Ad Hoc Committee was to evaluate, assess, and execute steps towards becoming recognized as a “Bike Friendly University” according to the recognition process of the League of American Bicyclists (LAB). According to the LAB:
“The Bicycle Friendly University (BFU) program recognizes institutions of higher education for promoting and providing a more bicycle-friendly campus for students, staff and visitors. The BFU program provides the roadmap and technical assistance to create great campuses for cycling.”
The application towards being recognized as a BFU can be found here, and is generally structured around the “5 Es”. http://www.bikeleague.org/bfa
