Commuting by bike is the cherry on top of my day. I feel like I’m getting away with something- beautiful scenery, fresh air, friendly walkers, bikers, lots of birds, flowers and sky!
It is easier to park, cheaper, and more environmentally-friendly than commuting by car. But most importantly it is fun!
Biking brings you closer to your community. I love seeing the same smiling faces of other cyclists and walkers. An experience like that is not possible commuting in a vehicle.
It’s always great to get out and enjoy the weather, plus get a little sweat in! Biking is convenient on UNC’s campus because of how expensive and difficult it is to park on/near campus.
My bicycle commute is such a great way to start and end my day. I love the exercise and being outdoors. And during the day, I can easily bike around campus or downtown for lunch.
I love not having to deal with parking and traffic on campus, being able to get from one part of campus to another easily and quickly, getting exercise, and especially how much fun it is!
I enjoy the convenience of biking and not having to find parking on or around campus, and the exercise. The roads are fairly well lit and made to accompany alternate transportation.
It’s good exercise, it makes me feel good, it’s free to park, and since parking on campus is such a hassle anyway, it ends up being a faster way to get to work.
Being able to avoid traffic jams on the street and just cycle through.
Fresh air and arriving at UNC after a little work out.
I like bicycling because it keeps me active, allows me to interact with the community, and is the most flexible way to get around town!
You are so much less isolated on a bike compared to when you are in your car. I can say ‘hello’ to friends or students I know.
