New Mexico State University in Las Cruces is being recognized for its bike-friendly policies.
The League of American Bicyclists has named NMSU a Bronze Bicycle Friendly University for taking steps to make bicycling a safe and easy option for students and staff.
New Mexico State University has taken several steps in recent months to increase safe-bicycling practices on campus, including increasing bicycle traffic law enforcement, educating motorists and cyclists about the rules of the road and working to prevent bicycle thefts on campus.
Some of the physical improvements made over the last year include painting bike lanes on Stewart Street, installing directional signs on the Horseshoe, adding and replacing bicycle racks and installing a bicycle Fix-It station outside Corbett Center Student Union.
