Austin Peay State University is proud to announce its partnership with the City of Clarksville to bring fitness and fun to campus.
Because of an award to a student winner of the Great Green Idea annual student sustainability competition, and the support of the Student Government Association and the Sustainable Campus Fee Committee, it’s easier to get around on a bike! Let’s make it a success this year so we can expand our campus bike-share next year!
The bike rack and kiosk are located outside Foy Fitness and Recreation Center, at the sidewalk in front of the tennis courts. Go check it out and learn more about Clarksville BCycle.

Bicycles and Climate Change
All the little things everyone can do to keep our Earth cool includes riding a bicycle instead of a vehicle that is fossil-fuel dependent. Do you live close enough to campus to ride a bike?! If you do, here are ways you will contribute to climate change mitigation:
- Manufacturing a bicycle requires far less energy and fewer resources
- Riding a bicycle produces no carbon emissions whatsoever
- Bicycles don’t require toxic batteries or motor oil, both environmental hazards
APSU is dedicated to providing the community with bike racks and developing infrastructure to make bicycle-riding practical for commuters, fun for recreation and safe for everyone!
Research shows that people are more likely to engage in healthy behaviors when they are encouraged and supported by their community. Healthier Tennessee Campus (HTC) works to provide opportunities and encouragement for APSU students, faculty, and staff to be more physically active, eat nutritious foods in the right portions, and abstain from tobacco use.
The bicycles in the B-Cycle program will help you achieve your physical activity goals. Instead of driving to class or meetings, hop on a bike and get a few minutes of exercise. The American Heart Association recommends at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity 5 days per week, so let’s get moving Govs! #HealthyPEAYple!
