Thumbs up: Map a route
Bike culture continues to gain traction in Indy. Take INDYCOG's new Ride Guide, for example. It charts the safety, accessibility and "bikeability" of the city's streets and warns riders of streets they should avoid. City landmarks, bike shops, bikeways andtrails are also listed. Checkout TheIndyCog.com to see the map online or for a list of local merchants distributing the FREE map. Then there's the City of Indianapolis, which is in the midst of developing its first Indianapolis Bicycle Master Plan, which is meant to help foster even greater ridership. Officials are hosting an open house to review the plan from 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3, at the Athenaeum, 401 E. Michigan St. If not, no sweat. The plan is available for review at the Central Library or online at indy.gov/bikeways. The city will accept comments on the plan through Nov. 3.
