Commuting by bike is a simple way to cut down on campus congestion and help preserve the environment – but biking to work offers even more benefits. Biking may improve your health, save you money, offer convenient parking and save you time in your daily commute. Thousands of students, staff, and faculty commute by bicycle to UW-Madison.

Many bicycle commuters start out by riding only once a week as it can be challenging to change your routine and build up your fitness. The more you ride, though, the easier it becomes. Before you know it, the once-a-week bike commute will become a daily activity. Give it a try!
