UCCS Bicycle Advocacy Committee
The Bicycle Advocacy Committee was established fall 2014 to support the Pedal Perks bicycle incentive program that was funded through a Kaiser Permanente grant. The committee has continued it's efforts establishing UCCS as a Silver Bike Friendly University as of August 2017 and retaining Silver as of March 2022. The goal of the committee is to support the cycling community at UCCS by advocating for infrastructure, providing educational opportunities, and engaging interested, yet concerned populations. The committee meets monthly and includes faculty, staff, and student representatives.
