Last week we took members of the @provocity engineering and planning staff on a bike tour of greater downtown. We showed them the good and the bad and sent a list of cheap and easy changes that would make Provo safer using just paint and signs. Here’s hoping the city responds.

#bikewalkprovostories Helen Czerepinski and granddaughter Abigail. Helen is in her 70’s and tows around her disabled granddaughter Abigail (11). They don’t know how much time Abigail has left, but they are making it as enjoyable as they can for her. “Before COVID, she could go as long as no one was sick, but now we can’t take her to school or playgrounds. This was the best way to get her out, and she’s so happy moving around and getting outside. She can’t walk or talk but she lets me know she likes this. I could take her in the wheelchair, but I would have to put a mask on, and I can go much further and protect her better because she’s in the trailer. And it’s good for me!”
