The League of American Bicyclists has a program to designate Bicycle Friendly Communities, and Danny Graber is organizing local cyclists to explore the possibility of Michiana becoming such a community.
Specifically, there are “Five E’s” that communities must address to be considered: Engineering, Education, Encouragement, Enforcement and Evaluation & Planning. After a great Bike to Work Week 6/2-6/6, and the city’s commitment to add additional bike lanes we’re off to a good start!
There will be an organizational meeting on the IUSB campus today (6/17) to throw some ideas around. Please get in touch if you’d like to get involved!
