One simple and frequent method for spreading safety information related to bicycles is a printed or digital poster.  As campus transitions to more and more digital signs, the bicycle education materials are transitioning to digital displays.  This reduces paper waste, with a minimal increase in energy use.

C-U Sharing the Road Video

The cities of Urbana and Champaign worked together to produce a bicycle education video to introduce the public to the bicycle infrastructure that is being installed around both cities and to teach motorists and bicyclists how to interact with each other on the road.

This 14 minute video, entitled C-U Sharing the Road was filmed on local C-U streets and features many local C-U bicyclists. The video was filmed, edited, and produced by Urbana Public Television.
