42+ times Bike Cleveland was mentioned or interviewed in the media, keeping cycling on the mind of all Greater Clevelanders.
3.15 new miles of bike facilities, including the opening of the Lake to Lakes Trail and theLorain Carnegie Bikeway. Plus in the spring 1.7 miles of bike lanes will be painted on Detroit Avenue in Cleveland.
4 changes to the Cleveland driving code that make our streets safer for people on a bike, including a 3-ft passing requirement when motorists pass a bicycle.
$10,000 in pro-bono communication services from Dix & Eaton to create a professional and effective bike safety public awareness campaign that will launch in the spring.
