Nashville State has a perfect location for the campus to become “Bicycle Friendly”.

  1. It is on the Music City Bikeway.
  2. It has a greenway that runs through it.
  3. All of its 10,000 students, faculty, and staff get to campus by some means of transportation.
  4. The college teaches architectural design courses and emphasizes LEED principles. (Leadership in Engineering and Environmental Design)
  5. One class this Spring designed a “bike-friendly campus” plan for NSCC.
  6. The obesity rate in Nashville is very high.
  7. The college should be encouraging active transportation. It is cheaper in a lot ways than everyone driving cars.

The college has a 30-year-old bicycle parking policy that says no bikes in the middle part of the campus. Is that bike friendly? It certainly does not encourage sustainable transportation or healthy lifestyle. The bike racks are in the parking lot and one is next to portable classrooms. That certainly does not encourage faculty, staff or students to use bicycles as transportation.

This is what was on my bike when I parked my bike under cover on a rainy day. The bike was not in anyone’s way. The Peg Studio does not have a bike parking rack. The correct location would be the Student Services Building parking lot.

Come to the Mayfield Library and check out our “Bicycles as Transportation” exhibit.
