Choose a Healthy Alternative: Ride Your Bike to Campus

The compact size of the Boston/Cambridge area makes bicycling a popular mode of transportation for students and employees. In addition to riding on main streets, there are a wealth of paths, parks and bicycle-friendly streets that can make bicycling one of your most efficient, healthy and enjoyable forms of transportation. Since bicycling in traffic can be a challenge, riders should be cautious and follow the rules of the road.
