Bicycling

Healthy GW

Be a part of the Healthy GW Initiative, and bike everywhere! Healthy GW aims to promote programs that encourage physical, mental and social well-being on our campus.

GW works to reduce the carbon intensity of its transportation carbon footprint. The Transportation CAP implementation team is working on a variety of projects to help incentivize lower carbon intensity transportation options.

Bike Amenities

GW faculty and staff are now eligible for a discounted Capital Bikeshare annual membership of only $25. Enjoy all the perks of Capital Bikeshare membership for less than 50 cents a week! Visit the Colonial Community website for more information.

The university maintains several facilities for bikers on campus. The university has 77 racks, 492 spaces. As new buildings come online, the university is integrating more secured bike storage and additional racks, with an additional 284 spots in current/upcoming construction.

In fall 2011, the Office of Sustainability partnered with the GW Lerner Health and Wellness Center to offer a shower-pass program to the university's gym. This program provides discounted semester-long gym memberships to the gym to cyclists and pedestrian commuters to use the shower and locker facilities.
