What makes a “Bicycle Friendly Community”? Come to our Friends of the Mattapoisett Bike Path meeting to find out.
We will meet at 6:30 pm onTuesday, August 13 at the Mattapoisett Free Library, 8 Barstow Street. We need a core group of volunteers to work on this nationally recognized designation. If you can’t come, but want to know more or get involved, call Bonne DeSousa at 508-951-2406.
A Bicycle Friendly Community welcomes cyclists with trails, bike lanes, share the road campaigns, organized rides, Bike to Work Day events and so much more. The application process provides a road map and a set of activities that recognize our area’s unique resources. We will evaluate and engage the town in improving infrastructure and encouraging people to bike for recreation and transportation (errands, shopping, commuting). Bicycling isn’t just a way to get from one place to another; a bike is a ticket to health, mobility, freedom and fun. Thank you everyone who visited our booth at Harbor Days!
