Bicycle rideability map shows safe routes and more
- on March 1, 2011
What is the safest way to get around town by bicycle?
You can find out by consulting the Lawrence Bicycle Rideability Map. It is a great tool for cyclists of all ages and abilities who want to navigate the community on two wheels.
City transportation planners developed it with input from the Bicycle Advisory Committee.
Streets are marked as green, yellow or red depending on how suitable they are for riders of various abilites. Difficult intersections are marked. City multiuse paths and trails are marked in blue.
The map also includes basic safety tips and other resources of interest.
While you can view it online, it is much easier to read in print. You can pick up one of the nifty pocket-sized maps at the locations listed here.
The Elizabeth Schultz Environmental Fund of DCCF paid for the printing of the maps.
