Millions of Americans engage in bicycling because it is a viable form of transportation, an excellent form of fitness, and it provides quality family recreation. Investing in road improvements such as bicycle lanes, routes, off-road trails and parking to enable safe access for all users are all ways the city encourages bicycling. The Group Bike Ride & Gathering is an additional way to encourage and promote alternate forms of transportation as well as health.
