Resources for cycling to and on the Lawrence Campus

Bicycle Advisory Committee

The KU Bicycle Advisory Committee (KUBAC) is made up of students, staff, and faculty from the KU community who have a vested interest in improving bikeability and developing a bike culture on the KU Lawrence Campus. KUBAC was established in 2012 as a means of helping implement the bicycle related goals of the Sustainability Plan, and has since taken on the role of implementing components of the KU Bike Plan

The goals of KUBAC include:

  • Promote bicycling as a mode of transportation and a form of recreation and exercise.
  • Educate the campus community – including motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians – on bicycle safety and etiquette.
  • Advise Campus Operations on matters related to bicycle infrastructure in order to maintain and improve a physical environment that encourages biking and multi-modal transportation.
