So We’re Building a Town!
Bike Safety Town
What's a Bike Safety Town?
Bicycle Safety Education Plan recommends the City construct a bicycle safety town to do just that. A bicycle safety town is a “miniature city,” complete with streets, bike lanes, and traffic signs. Families, adults, and children can all use the town to practice safe cycling skills as well as participate in classes hosted by the City and other community partners.
Where Should the Bike Safety Town Be?
Transportation Planning and Parks Planning staff are working to identify a location and design the bicycle safety town. Look for more information and updates throughout the summer here or subscribe to Momentum, the City's e-newsletter on bicycling.
