Part 1 Bike Friendly Community Application Submitted

Part 1 of the Bike Friendly Community (BFC) application for South Bend was submitted today, March 10.   Part 1 is actually a minor part of the overall BFC application process, but much work had to be done just to get to this point.  Part 1 formally recognizes:

a) the commitment of South Bend to become recognized as a Bike Friendly Community

b) the existence of  a Bicycle Master Plan

c) the assignment of a Bicycle Coordinator for South Bend (Chris Dressel)

d) the existence of a formal coordinating body for bicycle issues and citizen input (Bike Michiana Coalition)

e) the desire of our community to pursue Part 2 of the application process

Part 2 is very comprehensive, involving Engineering, Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, Evaluation and Planning, and Feedback.  Everyone in our community who has something of significance to share is encouraged to contribute to completing Part 2, and we will let you know shortly how you can do that.  Stay tuned!    — Pete Colan, Spin Zone Cycling
