What We Want
IT'S TIME WE MADE OURSELVES HEARD
Allow Class 1 and 2 e-bikes on greenways and allow BCycle, Spin, Bird and Lime to rent e-bikes.
Complete the downtown core bike lanes now
Fund bike infrastructure at a level that will make a real difference and upgrade the rest of our " bikeway network".
Fix Demonbreun Street immediately before a serious injury or death occurs
Change the KVB bridge bike lane so riders are safe and feel safe.
Create separated bike lanes and stop painting white lines that are too narrow and include the gutter. When a car can park in a bike lane it's not worth the paint.
Hire a fulltime Bike/Ped Coordinator in the Mayor’s Office to represent our goals and bring someone from a real bike friendly city like Minneapolis or Portland.
Revitalize the Mayor’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee so it is more representative, listens to the community and even gives the Mayor some advice.
Make greenways part of the transportation system and keep them open 24/7. No more closures for concerts or baseball games. When a greenway is closed for repairs act like it’s important instead of just another item on the to do list.
Make it clear that e-bikes are allowed on all greenways to encourage cycling with groups that would never consider bicycling.
Pass a Complete Streets Ordinance
Pass a Vision Zero Ordinance to Require Action on Road Safety
Monitor the progress of the Shared Urban Mobility Device program and advocate for SUMD micro-mobility
Support the Bcycle program and support the change to e-bikes
That’s just a start. Got some ideas? Send them to us and we’ll add them to the list.
Safe Streets PAC is a registered with the Davidson County Election Commssion and is in compliance with all applicable state laws.
