Biking and Walking

One of the easiest ways to reduce your carbon footprint is to curb your car.
If the average American biked or walked to work or shopping once every two
weeks instead of driving, we could prevent the pollution of close to one billion
gallons of gasoline from entering the atmosphere every year. Ride your bike
or walk—not only are you cutting way down on carbon emissions, you’re
getting exercise, too!

For a host of resources on biking and walking in and around Ann Arbor, visit or the Washtenaw Biking and Walking Coalition at Additional biking information is also available at

Want to ride your bike, but aren’t sure where to park it? The University of Michigan
has maps of bike parking for every section of campus
