Bike to School Week is Here

Bike to School Week 2020 starts Monday! We’re working with Provo schools and bike shops to encourage biking to school. Read through these flyers and follow the included instructions to get a prize for biking to school! Huge thanks to the local bike shops who are sponsoring this activity.

Desire lines. If urban designers are smart, they will pay attention to what their residents want and design for that. This @provo.parks river trail “exit” to Riverside Plaza (Maceys, Target, Ace Hardware, etc.”) shows that people would like easier access to those businesses. And we hope @provo.parks will take this into consideration in its updates to the Provo River Trail.

Introducing a very important service project!! Find a patch of goatheads on our map and once you’ve pulled it, register to mark it as done or email parker.howell26@gmail.com. Use the hashtag #GoodbyeGoatheads to spread the word & to celebrate the victory over these paw/foot/tire nemeses. Make a plan today!

We have a new vision for Center Street: – One where drivers actually drive 15mph – One where pedestrians feel comfortable crossing anywhere they like as written in Provo City Code 9.30 – One where people on bike and scooter feel comfortable taking the lane instead of riding on the sidewalks And we can accomplish this vision with your help and our elected leaders. Please add your name to a letter we will soon be sending to @provocity. LINK IN BIO!
