UCSB Receives Bicycle Friendly Business Gold Award

The university will be among 51 honorees to be announced at Wednesday's National Bike Summit

The League of American Bicyclists has named UCSB a Bicycle Friendly Business Gold Award winner.

UCSB will be among 51 new Bicycle Friendly Businesses announced at the 10th National Bike Summit in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.

According to a statement by the League of American Bicyclists, UCSB serves as an example for best practices and innovations in bicycle friendliness at the workplace. UCSB promotes bicycling as a viable form of transportation and gives its employees choices and options that make biking to work easy and fun, the statement said.

James Wagner, program manager for transportation alternatives at UCSB, said the award is focused on employee behavior and the incentives offered to those who commute by bicycle.

“I am thrilled to learn that UCSB has been selected for the 2010 Bicycle Friendly Business Gold Award,” Wagner said. “Nationally, UCSB leads the way in terms of percentage of the campus community that commutes by bicycle.”

He said 49 percent (10,215) of UCSB’s students commute by bicycle, as well as 9 percent (420) of the faculty and staff. UCSB also features seven miles of Class I bicycle paths, more than 10,000 secure bicycle parking spaces in bicycle racks, 40 secure bicycle lockers, six bicycle roundabouts and free showers for bicycle commuters.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
