Pedal Your Way Over to the City Bike Survey

Tom Giffey

The City of Eau Claire wants to level up its ranking as a Bicycle Friendly Community, and you can help. The city recently submitted an application to the League of American Bicyclists to renew its Bicycle Friendly Community status and to (hopefully) upgrade from a Bronze to a Silver rank. (Bicycle Friendly designations are granted based upon a community’s level of ridership, safety, transportation infrastructure, education, and many other factors.) Now, according to a press release, the city is looking for feedback “to obtain a better understanding of local bicyclists’ experiences and perceptions of bicycling in Eau Claire.” Whether you’re an avid biker or rarely push the pedals, the five-minute survey is for you: Find it at www.surveymonkey.com/r/app_BFC_FA19. To learn more about what makes Eau Claire a Bicycle Friendly Community, contact the city’s senior planner, Patrick Ivory, at (715)  839-4914 or pat.ivory@eauclairewi.gov.
