Medford Bike and Pedestrian Committee - News

by Gary Shaff on Apr, 24 2018

The Medford Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee, at their April meeting, unanimously endorsed incorporating the National Association of City Transportation Official’s document entitled Designing for All Ages and Abilities into the City’s transportation plan.

In their letter of support the Committee noted that: “a City providing streets that are safe and comfortable for bicyclists of all ages and abilities are critical for attracting wide ridership. All Ages & Abilities bike facilities are safe, comfortable and equitable. More people will bicycle when they have safe places to ride, and more riders mean safer streets. Bikeways that provide comfortable, low-stress bicycling conditions can achieve widespread growth in mode share. High-quality bikeways expand opportunities to ride and encourage safe riding.”
