Keep in the know with Bike Easy!
This fall, Connect the Crescent showcased the concept of a connected, protected biking, walking, and transit network. The idea was simple: make it easy, safe, and accessible for local residents to commute between their home and jobs downtown. Conversations were started, valuable data was collected, and a wealth of community feedback was generated for public officials ahead of forthcoming permanent, protected bikeway installations across the city. We are in the midst of using this information to assemble a report to share what we learned with you.
In the meantime, check out the video of Blake, Frank, and Hannah taking us on a tour of the Connect the Crescent network and telling us why it matters.
P.S. share this video…
- With your friends!
- With the Mayor and City Council (tell them why it matters and tag them when you share the video on your social media e.g.-
- Add a comment and show your support using #connectthecrescent
