Bike updates

Here are just a few news items and pages on cycling recently added to GreenCityBlueLake:

  • The Jackson Administration is looking at Cleveland’s five-year capital planning as a great opportunity to build bike/pedestrian improvements into the city budget.
  • Local cycling newsletter CrankMail published its 10 Best Rides in Cleveland (available on CD with route maps, just in time for Christmas).
  • ClevelandBikes was awarded a $10,000 grant to support the creation of a downtown bike station. (Stay tuned, more information on how the money can be used is still to come).
  • Sharon Todd, Bicycle & Pedestrian Coordinator with ODOT, has announced the availability of two new manuals, ODOT Design Guidance for Independent Bicycle Facilities, and ODOT Design Guidance for Roadway-Based Bicycle Facilities. (The latter has a link to Policy on Accommodating Bicycle and Pedestrian Travel on ODOT Owned or Maintained Facilities, which is currently broken. ODOT fixed the link to the document here).
  • NOACA's Sally Hanley reports on the Walkable/Bikable Communities Workshop that happened in Cleveland in October.
  • The Towpath Trail gets a new addition at Steelyard Commons, plus more updates on the plan to bring the trail up to Cleveland.
