Indy to be Bicycle Friendly City

If you're a bicycle rider, you might want to pedal on over to the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Michigan Street at 9:30 a.m. 15 October for a press conference scheduled by Mayor Greg Ballard.

Rumor has it he'll endorse a four-phase bike lane plan for the City of Indianapolis. This plan, Indy Bikeways, will, over the next 15 years, provide more than 200 miles of bike lanes in Marion County.

His announcement coincides with the start of the bike lane striping for New York and Michigan Streets. This project, along with the bike lanes on Allisonville Road, represents Phase 1 of the Indy Bikeways Plan.
