 BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Virginia Tech is being recognized for its efforts to encourage students, staff and visitors to ride bicycles.
 
     The League of American Bicyclists has designated Virginia Tech as a bicycle friendly university. Virginia Tech received the league's bronze award, the third-highest designation.
 
     The school is one of 58 colleges and universities in the nation to receive the designation.
 
     Virginia Tech announced the designation Monday in a news release. The school says it has invested in nine miles of shared paths, three miles of bike lanes and several covered bicycle racks. Additional bicycle racks are planned, along with more bicycle repair services.
 
     Also, the school and the Town of Blacksburg are building a connector to link the existing Huckleberry Trail with the Foxridge Trails.
