Bicycling supports physical and mental health, the environment, economic development and quality of life. Having more bicycles on the road reduces traffic congestion, improves safety, promotes better air quality and increases physical activity in the population.
|Sharrows indicate safe bike positions on South Lime St. in Lancaster.
This fall, the city of Lancaster is painting bike lanes and shared lane markings (sharrows) on several miles of city streets. Christian Street will become a pedestrian and bike-friendly corridor that passes directly by the Downtown Pavilion. Those improvements will promote bicycle riding as a means of transportation.
In September, Brenda Buescher and Jesse Gerber from LG Health’s Wellness Center team developed LancasterBikes.org, a resource website where community members can find bike maps, safety information, and updates about the City bike network.
LG Health and Lancaster Bikes! also offer driver education, transportation and fitness tips on the Lancaster Bikes! Facebook and Lancaster Bikes! Instagram account.
