Take advantage of VU’s biking resources

Posted in NEWS on Friday, May 23rd, 2014

May is National Bike Month, and it’s not too late to get in on this healthy and cost effective mode of transportation.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that biking one mile saves almost one pound of greenhouse gases from being produced, roughly equivalent to the amount of greenhouse gas produced by the average home in Nashville’s electricity usage over 25 minutes.

Don’t own a bike? Nashville offers two bike rental options in the downtown area, including locations near Vanderbilt’s campus.

Biking to Vanderbilt? Vanderbilt offers many amenities for bikers on campus, including shower areas and bike racks. Learn more about Vanderbilt’s alternative transportation options, including biking, at SustainVU.
