Bishop’s receives VÉLOSYMPATHIQUE Bronze certification


Bishop’s University has announced that it has received VÉLOSYMPATHIQUE Bronze certification from Vélo Québec. The certification recognizes the efforts that the university has made towards promoting cycling as a transportation option and actively developing a cycling culture on campus. To foster this culture, Bishop’s has undertaken initiatives such as providing educational activities on bike safety, hosting maintenance clinics, and offering an “active transportation” package to those who primarily travel by bike from May to October. “Bishop’s University is remarkably dynamic; its initiatives toward cycling education and promotion are second to none on larger campuses,” said Vélo Québec President Jean-François Rheault. “It is committed to its community, working closely with all members, and adopting astute solutions that complement public transportation.”
