Where Will Bike Lanes Go, and What Will They Look Like?

If you don’t receive information from the Sports Backers’ BikeWalkRVA program, you should. Their email blasts are always informative. Case in point: a recent email from Shihan Wijeyeratne, Lead Organizer for Bike Walk RVA. Pay special attention to the clickable street segments to see what bike lane improvements might look like.

The second Big Bike Lanes Meeting is in the books, and there’s a lot to be excited about! Thanks to the voices of hundreds of advocates like you, plastic posts have been added to several of the designs, taking us one step closer to a network of physically protected bikeways.

In case you didn’t make it to the meeting or want to take another look at the near-final designs, click on any of the proposed corridors below:

If you haven’t already, please take a second to fill out a comment sheet, letting city staff and consultants know what you think about these designs >>
(Comment sheets can be submitted to Jakob Helmboldt – Pedestrian, Bicycling and Trails Coordinator <Jakob.Helmboldt@richmondgov.com>)


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?
