LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A cycling magazine has named the University of Kentucky as the most bicycle-friendly college in the country.

Bicycle Magazine picked the state’s flagship school from 45 universities, ranging from small, liberal-arts colleges to large, public universities.

Amelia Neptune, program director at the League of American Bicyclists, says UK’s creative incentives offered to students, staff and faculty and commitment to supporting cycling stood out from other schools.

Sandra Broadus, UK’s alternative transportation manager, says a lot of funding has gone into infrastructure improvements, outreach, education and incentive programs for cyclists in the past six or seven years. Despite the national recognition, Broadus says there’s still room for improvement. Broadus says the school is getting ready to open its first indoor bike room.
