CalBike Executive Director Dave Synder just completed the long awaited bike riding tourism report, “Promoting Safe Bicycle Travel Opportunities for Bicycle Tourism and Economic Development.” It’s a fascinating report of a study that included input from cyclists and cycling groups in Northern California.
Made possible by a Sustainable Transportation Planning Grant funded by Senate Bill 1,
this report examines safety improvements to California roads and rights-of-way. It also offers tips on how best to support bicyclists and bicycle tourism in the state, specifically in the focus areas of San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Tuolumne, Calaveras and Alpine counties.
The report identifies possible projects that encourage and support the increase of bicycling from the Central Valley to the High Sierra. The proposed projects offer a broad cross section of opportunities to encourage bicycling for residents and visitors, from new multi-mile trails linking recreational destinations, to easily-installed supportive amenities like bicycle racks, repairs stations, and wayfinding signage.
