The University of Iowa has received an honorable mention from the Bicycle Friendly University (BFU) program.

BFU judges schools based on how they promote bicycling through engineering, encouragement, education, enforcement and evaluation/planning. Bronze, silver, gold and platinum awards are given out to the colleges and universities who receive high scores in each of the five categories.

In the upcoming year, the University of Iowa hopes to improve their designation by offering a bike repair course and training instructors to teach bicycle safety and skills, developing a plan for bike repair stations on campus, forming a bike advocacy student group and by increasing education about bike resources.
