Bike Cleveland Seeks Community Feedback
Bike Cleveland, a regional bicycle advocacy and education organization, is working to improve connectivity and safety across Cleveland and recently announced a Connecting Communities survey. The organization seeks feedback from Cleveland community members to guide their advocacy efforts as streets are repaved, restripped or reconstructed to ensure the safest and best-connected bike network possible.
Jacob VanSickle, Bike Cleveland Executive Director, says “Cleveland’s bike network is growing, with over 70 miles of bike lanes added over the past 4 years. But, while it is growing, Cleveland neighborhoods aren’t connected. The lack of connectivity lowers both ridership and safety of people riding bikes.” Bike Cleveland is working to improve connectivity and safety through the https://www.bikecleveland.org/connecting-communities/ plan.
Connecting Communities is a vision for building a better bike network, but it’s not just about bikes. It’s about building safe and healthy neighborhoods by:
• Narrowing car lanes and reducing vehicular speed to make streets safer for people walking, biking, and driving.
• Offering people multiple ways to get where they want to go and a safe, comfortable experience for people of all ages and abilities who don’t have access to a private automobile.
