Facilities for Bicyclists
Gordon College provides a covered bike rack and indoor showers for bicyclists in the Ken Olsen Science Building. There are also outdoor bike racks around campus for bike storage as needed.
Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan
Gordon College strives to make its campus more bicycle and pedestrian friendly by encouraging the use of bicycles on campus instead of using personal vehicles. Bicycle racks are provided at all major buildings and dorms for student and staff use. Major dorms have interior bicycle rooms for secure storage and winter protection. Air to pump up tires is provided 24/7 at the Physical Plant building.
On average, there are 300 bicycles on campus on any average day.
In general, there are more pedestrians on campus during any given day. As a result, pedestrians are given the right of way.
