The Runner Ride Bike Program at CSU Bakersfield provides the opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to check out a bike for free for the day as a healthy and sustainable mode of transportation. Expansion for this program, which currently serves about 2,500 participants per year, will provide bicycle safety programming, improve program infrastructure, and provide additional bike maintenance, all activities that will increase CSUB’s Bronze standing as a Bicycle Friendly University through the League of American Bicyclists. The development and expansion of the Runner Ride will boost campus and community cycling participation, increase health and environmental education concerning the benefits of cycling, and take polluting vehicles off of the road.
