San Diego State University has taken another step in making their campus more welcoming and friendly toward cyclists. The following images were taken by Philip J. Erdelsky and have been posted here with his permission.
Last year we reported that SDSU had taken steps to make its campus more bike friendly and we’re happy to note that this positive change is continuing, a year later.
This change is a direct result of the efforts made by the student organization, the Enviro-business Society (e3) beginning in 2008,
In 2008, the student organization, the Enviro-business Society (e3) presented a resolution to the Associated Students for the installation of campus-wide bike lanes to help mitigate traffic, increase accessibility and most importantly, to assist the campus in reducing its green house gas emissions. In 2009 the Associated Students initiated feasibility, plans and campus policy changes permitting the installation of campus bike lanes.
The first phase of the bike lane installation included Campanile Walkway and was completed at the end of spring 2011. The second and final phase of the bike lane installation was finished at the end of summer 2011 which included Aztec Walkway as well as bike signage upgrades to interior campus streets. On behalf of the Associated Students and San Diego State University we hope you utilize these lanes in a safe and responsible manner while making an effort to use another convenient mode of alternative transportation.
