Weekend Bicycle Loops
The City Council has approved a weekend Street/Bicycle Loop Plan. These bike loops will be available each weekend (Saturday and Sunday only) starting on June 27, 2020 and continue to the end of December 2020. It is hoped that this effort will encourage exercise through bicycling and pedestrian activity while providing residents with an alternate means to travel Downtown.
The Street/Bicycle Loop Plan includes Cherry, Elm, St. Francis, and Cedar with intermediate connections to Arroyo, Brittan, and Howard. The Bike Loops will connect to the Downtown and other sections of Laurel Street. While the routes include posted signs, ground markings, and pedestrian paddles at most crosswalks, it is important to note that the streets are not closed off to through traffic. All drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians are encouraged to stay alert and travel safely.
Additional bike racks will be available in the Downtown to accommodate the anticipated increase in bikes.
Changeable message boards will be located in the city and social media messaging provided to inform the community about these Bike Loops. Additional signs will be placed the routes to remind motorists to share the roadway and proceed with caution.
