Bicycling is a common form of transportation on college campuses across the United States and around the world. Not only is bicycling a sustainable form of transportation, it is also cheaper and healthier than driving a car (and FUN!). Considering UMW’s close proximity to residential areas inhabited by students, faculty, and staff, bicycling possesses incredible potential as a mode of transportation to get to, from, and around campus. Unfortunately UMW lacks the facilities and infrastructure necessary to appropriately accommodate bicyclists…So let’s plan UMW’s bicycling future!
The goals of the University of Mary Washington Campus Bicycle Plan are to assess existing conditions on and around campus, improve bicycle facilities and safety, and encourage the UMW community to bicycle more often.

The University of Mary Washington Campus Bicycle Plan is a project spearheaded by Justin Doyle (UMW ’08), a graduate student enrolled in Virginia Commonwealth University’s Master of Urban & Regional Planning (MURP) program. This project was selected by Justin as his Studio II capstone project for the MURP program.
