  2. Encourage bicycling as a mode of transportation by providing a continuous bicycling network connected to the regional bicycle system.
  3. Improve safety by providing an understandable, logical, and enforceable bicycling system.
  4. Improve the quality of life for visitors, faculty, staff, and students through increased exercise, recreation, and environmental sustainability.
