Colleges peddle bikes to car-loving students
Strategies include free bike-sharing programs, expanding bike lanes

...Cycling already has a foothold at many colleges, where hefty parking fees, sprawling campuses and limited roads make it tough to travel. Still, most students are reluctant to leave their cars parked.

"They're using them to drive from residence halls to class, which is a two- or three-block commute," said Ric Damm, an administrator and cycling coach at Ripon College, which is giving away $300 bikes to freshmen who leave their cars at home. "We thought, 'How can we provide an incentive to get them out of that behavior?'"

When I was in college, it would have done no good to try and drive 3 blocks, I wouldn't find a parking spot closer than 4 blocks from classes anyway!

When I was in college in the early 90's, maybe 1% of the students had a car and it was in a pretty rural town. It just wasn't part of the experience.
