Biking at Emory

Getting around on two wheels

Biking at Emory Highlights

Emory University supports biking for the Emory Community through advocacy and investments in bicycle infrastructure, including bike racks, bike rentals, and PATH multi-use pathways. The Bike Friendly University program of the League of American Bicyclists has given Emory a Silver rating for supporting bicyclists.

By 2025, we will develop a bicycle and pedestrian master plan to include dedicated bike and pedestrian lanes and trails and bike amenities.
