If you are specifically choosing your place of higher education based on bike-friendliness, this list will help you. If you are just curious about which colleges are the most bike-friendly, then this list will certainly help you. If you are not curious at all about which colleges are the most bike-friendly, but happen to be assigned a homework project about the most bike-friendly college campuses, this list will help you a lot as well.
