Bicycle Friendly Community
Comprised of Punta Gorda City and Charlotte County staff, local business leaders and private citizens, this committee is seeking the League of American Bicyclists’ national designation of “Bicycle-Friendly Community” for greater Punta Gorda. The committee is an advocate for additional multi-use paths through linear parks, along the waterfront, and throughout greater Punta Gorda. The implementation of “Share the Lane,” a public education and information campaign, is another of their many activities. The committee is developing bicycle friendly safety and information kiosks, pavement signage and other means of promoting safety and respect among bicyclists, motorists and pedestrians. The committee works closely with Pedal and Play and is in the process of creating and promoting new bicycle events.
