BFU Spotlight: ‘BUG’ at UVM
At the University of Vermont, the word “BUG” has a whole new meaning.
Last week, we announced our latest round of Bicycle Friendly Universities, including the University of Vermont, a new Silver-level BFU. Vermont advanced from Bronze this round, and the program now has 100 BFUs in 37 states and Washington, D.C.
We were especially impressed by Vermont’s “BUG,” or Bicycle User Group, a student-lead effort to get more people biking and to create a welcoming, safe atmosphere for bicyclists at UVM. Also on campus is a free bike share program and an on-campus bike shop and education center. All of these initiatives are a recipe for a great campus bike culture, which UVM documented just last year.
