The University of South Carolina has WON the League of American Bicyclists’ Bike Friendly University Bronze Level Award!!
We are the first and only University in the state of South Carolina and in the SEC to be recognized.
We are so excited about this great award for USC. Healthy Carolina serves as a member of the USC Bike Advisory Committee to provide guidance on planning and implementation of programs and policies that support a healthy campus environment for faculty, staff, and students at USC.
Creating a cycle friendly campus is key to that mission. By promoting routine physical activity through cycling we are improving the health and well being of our campus. This award is confirmation of the university’s investment in making the healthy choice the simple choice for our community.
One way Healthy Carolina contributes to USC’s cycling initiatives is to support advocacy for cycling. Coming up on April 17th, Healthy Carolina along with our other USC Bike Advisory Committee Partners will be holding USC’s first ever “Travel Lightly Day”. This is a day to encourage everyone to rethink their travel choices and choose to bike, walk, skate, carpool, or shuttle to campus instead of driving. For more details please see our website: http://www.sc.edu/healthycarolina/travelight.html. Cycling, whether it be to work, class, or for fun is great for your health!
