Transportation and Engineering: Active Transportation
May is National Bike Month and the perfect time of year to pedal around St. George! This year the City will be teaming up with a number of nonprofit organizations like the St. George Bicycle Collective, LiVe Well St. George Bike Share, Southern Utah Bicycle Alliance, Southwest Utah Public Health Department and the Washington County School District to encourage more people to get up, get out and ride!
Judging by the number of bicycles on the back of vehicles around town this spring, the word is out that St. George is a pretty rad place to ride. The great thing about our area is that there is no shortage of venues and facilities to suite everyone’s riding style be it a paved trail, long open-road, dirt trail, slick rock, SK8 Park and even a new bike park beginning construction this summer! At the end of the day, the important thing isn’t so much where you bike or how you bike, it’s that you bike!
Biking befits us all in so many ways: it improves overall health, reduces healthcare costs, reduces pollution and traffic congestion, frees up parking spaces and can be extremely social. By simply taking a bike rather than car to run errands a couple of times a week, you not only help yourself but the community as-a-whole. As May approaches we hope that you’ll make a commitment to look for ways to incorporate active transportation, specifically biking, into your weekly recreation and transportation routine. Here are a few events and activities to get you motivated:
