SDSU More Bike-Friendly This Year

Students returning to SDSU this week will find their campus a bit more bike-friendly than it has been in the past. Two years ago, San Diego State University made news with its unilateral ban on bike riding on campus. This year, as part of a broader sustainability initiative, SDSU has installed bike lanes on their major pedestrian thoroughfares on campus. Bike riding, skateboarding and scooters are apparently still officially prohibited on many campus walkways, but it is good to see a nod toward transportation cycling on such a large campus. We hope that encouraging more students to live and ride in the local community, rather than commute by car, will help make the College Area as a whole a safer place to ride.
