Bike facilities at GW’s Foggy Bottom Campus currently include nearly 500 bike parking spaces, consisting of street-level parking spaces and spaces within academic and residential buildings. Additional bicycle facilities with approximately 225 new spaces are proposed at the university’s pending development sites. The May 2010 GW Climate Action Plan specifically recognizes the value of amenities for bike commuters and proposes increasing these amenities through the provision of bike racks in university garages and a reduced rate for shower-only Health and Wellness membership for faculty and staff.
