Mayor's Bicycle Advisory Council

Mayor Hogsett on the 2016 Polar Bear Pedal
Circle City Bicycles attended the February meeting of the Mayor's Bicycle Advisory Council. According to their website:
The purpose of the Mayor's Bicycle Advisory Council is to advise City of Indianapolis leadership on matters relating to the use of bicycle as a means of transportation and recreation.The Mayor's Advisory Council reviews and makes recommendations on planning, design and development of projects by developers, City Departments and consultants affecting the use of bicycles.

Despite the fact that Indianapolis was ranked number 13 on Bicycling magazine's list of The 50 Best Bike Cities, you would never suspect it if you traveled around the south side of town. About the only thing that has been done on the south side is the creation of a bike lane on Madison that disappears at intersections. After attending February's meeting, it was apparent that no one was present to advocate for the interests of the south side. Because of this, Circle City Bicycles will be sending a representative to future meetings. These are held on the third Tuesday of each month. If there is any issue you would like to have brought before the council, please let us know by sending an email to ed@circlecitybicycles.com
