Support Safe Cycling and the Minimum Transportation Grid

A growing number of our neighbors are using bicycles to travel to work, doctors, restaurants, groceries and other daily tasks. The City of Punta Gorda, along with other organizations and many bicycle riders have laid out a minimum bicycle infrastructure to provide a convenient and practical method of integrating bicycle transportation with motor based transportation. This plan can be viewed here. http://www.ci.punta-gorda.fl.us/AgendaPublic/AttachmentViewer.aspx?AttachmentID=15271&ItemID=10822 Adoption of this plan will provide suggested routes, bicycle education and best practices for those that for reasons of choice, finance or legal, choose to ride a bicycle. As a bicycle rider of 8000 miles per year I have seen and can vouch for the calming effects that a well defined bicycle infrastructure provides. Studies in cities such as New York, Portland, Davis all report that bicycle infrastructure not only reduces crashes involving bicycles but oddly, autos as well. Please sign this petition so that the City feels they have support from citizens going forward. Thank you.
