Join Us for May Bike Month 2015

CentreBike is gearing up for May!  May is both National Bike to Work Month, as well as National Bike Safety Month, and we have a handful of events to celebrate the start of another warm-weather cycling season.

“Commuter Coffee Fridays” will offer free coffee to commuting cyclists every Friday morning in May at a different location around Downtown State College. You’ll also have the opportunity to take a family-friendly bike ride with the Mayor, or attend a PennDOT press event about bicycle safety in the region.

We’d love to see you at any of our May events!

Cyclists, We Need Your Voice! (April 2015)

 

The Centre Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) is in the early stages of an exciting project: the development of recommendations for a Regional Bicycle Plan. This plan will guide planning efforts around cycling in the region for the foreseeable future. In addition to public review meetings, CRCOG is looking for input from cyclists and non-cyclists alike about the needs in our community, including bicycle infrastructure, programming, and safety.

It’s important that all cyclists provide input, so that we can demonstrate to our elected officials that this work is important to us. We encourage you to attend tomorrow night’s Public Review of the Bicycle Plan meeting, and stay on the look out for future meetings around this issue. In the meantime, CRCOG is also looking for survey data – a simple 10 minutes of your time.

 

Ready to provide your input on cycling in the region?  Please fill out the CRCOG bicycling survey!

Sample MapOne of the things we’ve been working on behind the scenes at Centre Bike is updating the bike routes on Google Maps to increase the connectivity and usefulness of Google’s Bicycling Directions option.

Have a destination you’d like mapped? Is there a cycling route you use, but it doesn’t come up in Google’s bicycling directions? Fill out this form, and we’ll see what we can do.
When the map comes up, be sure to click on the “Show bike paths” option at the head of the directions.
