DuPage County's new tools for people who ride bikes

DuPage County has been working hard lately to make it easier for people who ride bikes.

The county recently launched a new app for smartphones and tablets; cyclists with the app will be able to pinpoint their location on county trails based on GIS data.

Another website, Go Bike, enables cyclists to plan routes based on whether they are casual or experienced riders.

Active Trans helps suburbs build Family-Friendly Bikeways

Three-foot-wide striped bike lanes and “share the road” markings may provide enough security for the 10 percent of people who are already strong and confident cyclists.

But what about the other 90 percent of people -- those who need more protection from cars in order to cycle without feeling anxious?

Active Trans believes that providing these 90 percent with “next-generation” bike facilities will increase confidence and allow for safer, more frequent cycling trips.

That’s the focus of our newest campaign, Family-Friendly Bikeways.
