Beauty from a Bike - McKinley St Bike Lanes!

Cycling is a great form of exercise that can be experienced by most people of any age from child to senior citizen. Cycling, instead of driving a car to run errands can reduce traffic, save fossil fuels which in turn reduces pollution, and saves money. A critical component to riding safely includes lanes specifically dedicated to bicycles. As an avid cyclist, I am quite pleased to see the McKinley Street construction project includes bike lanes. Adding bike lanes where possible, and designated bike routes on existing streets with proper signage, is a great method of creating a safe environment for cycling and encourages people to ride more. Kudos to the City of Beaver Dam for considering bike lanes in street construction projects.
