Invest in More Bike Lanes to Reduce Sidewalk Riding

Technically, it's illegal to ride a bicycle on the sidewalk if you're past the "learning stage" in the state of Wisconsin unless it is marked as a designated bicycle pathway by the municipality.

Yet many people continue to ride on sidewalks because they feel they are safer.

New York City is creating more protected bike lanes, and guess what, ridership has increased! The city of Milwaukee has been working to increase the number of dedicated bike lanes.

We believe that if more people ride their bikes, the happier our city will be. And the more people who ride their bikes, the safer it will be for all of us. Get out and ride!
