The City of La Crosse is planning the 2018 Ride with Mayor, City Staff and Dave Schlabowske, Wisconsin Bike Fed’s Executive Director at 9:30 am on June 5th beginning at Logan Middle School, 1450 Avon Street, with a press conference, followed by a ride. The goal of the ride is to look at progress made on infrastructure as well as future projects that will improve transportation, livability and mixed income development on the north side of La Crosse.  

The ride will also focus on how active transportation -- bus, bike, and walk -- can improve transportation for everyone, not just those who use it. Active transportation can increase the efficiency with which we use the streets we have, take a percentage of cars out of traffic in peak hours to alleviate congestion, and decrease wear and tear.

La Crosse first earned Silver Status from the League of American Bicyclists in 2011 and kept the same designation when renewing the application in 2015. The City of La Crosse continues to work on implementing recommendations from the Bicycle Pedestrian Master Plan that was adopted in 2012. 

Anyone interested in the progress of the La Crosse Bicycle Pedestrian Master Plan is invited to attend.
