Screen Shot 2016-04-06 at 11.33.48 AMThe Sports Backers have done those of us interested in bicycle- and pedestrian-related issues a great service. A couple of months ago, Bike Walk RVA (an offshoot of the SBs) issued a survey to all of Richmond’s mayoral candidates to gauge their knowledge of and commitment to issues like transportation equity, the concepts of “complete streets” and “vision zero,” bike/ped infrastructure projects and funding.

You can click here to read the entire list of answers from every candidate (or cherry pick the answers from the candidates you’re most interested in).

Local blog Bikeable Richmond featured a bike-friendly take on the candidates’ answers a couple of days ago. It’s worth a read if you want a quick hitter on who stands where when it comes to bicycle and pedestrian issues.

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
