Those who ride bicycles around San Marcos and the Texas State University campus should enjoy a safer riding environment.
Students who ride their bicycles to class are taking a high risk of being in an accident since most or our roads don't have a lane designated for bicycles use only. They ride on the road with buses which is very dangerous and with construction going on around town less people are able to have a safe ride.
While the roads are under construction the local government in San Marcos, Texas should take action and invest money on the roads that are being worked on to create more bicycle lanes.
The helmet law in TN was enacted without the voters having a say. This act happens far too often and I want to change the way laws are made, repealed or changed.
I hope to have your support on this to let the government know that TN is our state, our government, our life, our right, and finally our choice.
I am trying to get a good maintained skatepark in Scranton. There is no good skate parks in our community besides one for skateboards only.
I ride Bmx along with lots of other young and older kids in my area and we don't have any good skateparks in our area that we can ride and keep our selves out of trouble in.
I think if our community made a nice skate park it would lower the rate of kids getting in trouble for riding and skating in our town, which is definitely a problem especially in downtown Scranton and other areas that are fun to ride in but not safe.
We need a good park to keep our selves occupied and out of trouble. I think it would make a huge difference in our community.
The condition of cycling facilities at La Trobe University has been too low for too long. Often cyclists who arrive on campus will not be able to find adequate or secure shelter for the their bikes, and are frustrated by the general lack of other facilities and support.
Only 2% of students currently cycle to university, far fewer than those who live close enough to do so. The La Trobe Student Union believes that the University must do more to improve the quality of facilities for cyclists, and attract more students to choose to ride to university.
This is also in the interests of students for whom riding is not a viable option, as increased cycling will reduce pressure on the parking and tram systems.
Victoria road and in fact most roads in Port Adelaide / Adelaide now have Bike Lanes. You are not allowed to park in them at periods which cause problems for local business and residents. They are active even on public holidays.
They devalue our property and cause loss of business. They are wrong as a proper bike lane would have footpath, car parking, bike lane, road car lanes. This is not the case here.
The London Cycle Hire scheme currently covers Vauxhall, Kennington and Oval (and planned for Stockwell from 2013) but does not cover Brixton or Clapham.
In fact, only around 50 of the 335 docking stations are
currently located south of the river.
As Brixton and Clapham residents, we want the opportunity to use the cycle hire scheme in the same way we would if we lived 1 mile north of the river.
This campaign is being backed by local Labour councillors and Val Shawcross, Labour Assembly Member for Lambeth and Southwark.
Extensions to the Cycle Hire Scheme would ease pressure on the very busy Northern & Victoria tube lines that run through Clapham and to Brixton.
We are therefore calling on the Mayor of London to extend the Barclay's Cycle Hire Scheme to Brixton and Clapham at the earliest possible opportunity.
We should encourage and maximize the use of bicycles as a means of transport in South Australia.
- Wider bike lanes on major roads.
- Tougher laws for careless drivers.
- An "Own Choice" helmet law for over 21's.
- An increase of bike trails and tracks in outer suburbs further linking busier areas.
Not only would this decrease the State's carbon emissions, but it would also increase health within population, boost tourism, create cultural awareness and studies also show riding a bike is beneficial to mental health.
The draft Boulder City Open Space & Mountain Parks West Trail Study Area Plan (OSMP West TSA Plan) proposes continuing a decades old bike ban. Despite two long years of intense effort by BMA, even our modest requests for limited access have been rejected. None of the existing 78 miles of trails are to be opened to bikes and none of the approximately 17 miles of new trails will be either.
OSMP staff offers instead two presently unobtainable "future" opportunities: an access via the Eldorado State Park that, after 10 years of effort, is still opposed by the Park and possible use of the Chapman Drive dirt road, to which OSMP does not have legal access.
In addition, the staff has presented the traditional package of demonstratively contrived "environmental" and "user conflict" issues as justification for continuing the mountain bike prohibition.
Mountain bikers (and BMA) are the most engaged and service oriented user group in Boulder County. BMA has 20 years of volunteer service, trail construction, maintenance, patrolling, and visitor education. The staff's rejection of our modest requests and their lack of any realistic justification for the rejection leaves us no choice. We must speak out in opposition to the staff's unjustified opinions and to their misrepresentations of mountain bike issues.
Please do your part, sign this petition, and visit the BMA website (http://bouldermountainbike.org) to see what else you can do in the next month to defend Boulder mountain biking.
Hello, we are trying to get trail in bo'ness (kinneil woods) and are asking all people interested in helping build the trails to sign this petition.
Evidence shows that providing cycling facilities such as cycle lanes encourages people to cycle. It also makes it easier and more pleasant for current cyclists.
The Cycle Hire scheme currently covers Vauxhall, Kennington and Oval which border Stockwell. Extensions to the Cycle Hire Scheme will ease pressure on the very busy Northern & Victoria tube lines that converge at Stockwell.
This petition is to ask Mayor Applebaum to bring BIXI to NDG. BIXI is now available in London, Washington, Boston.... So why not NDG? Please help us make this possible for the residents of NDG who also deserve access to what is the most fun, environmentally
friendly, and flexible means of transport.
Cette pétition a pour but de demander au maire Applebaum d'implémenter le service de BIXI à NDG. Les BIXI sont déjà disponibles à Londres, Washington, Boston, etc. alors pourquoi pas NDG? S'il vous plaît, aidez-nous à rendre ce service disponible aux résidents de ce quartier qui souhaitent bénéficier de ce moyen de transport amusant, flexible et respectueux de l'environnement!
Over the past few years, the sport of "Dirt Jumping" has grown rapidly; especially among teenagers. Many of these teenagers have limited access to an enjoyable, safe, creative location to ride. When Challenge park was created, it provided few things for riders to enjoy. Now as it grows every year, we the riders would like to see large improvements. However challenge park has some very noticable flaws to many riders and there are things that can be done, to encourage more riders at challenge park, from beginner to expert.
We would like to suggest things such as a larger jump course with small, medium, and large lines. We feel that some freeride features such as skinnies, platforms, etc. Would be great enjoyment for all riders. To encourage the growth of other parts of the sport we would like to see a concrete or dirt pump track. Lastly we would like to see a foam pit put in where riders can enhance there skills in a risk free environment.
Update 26/Sep/11: the original petition used a funding model based on a developer sponsored Bicycle Transition Centre and the development land suggested was 3 Cliff Street. The developer funded model still may be the way to go and other locations for the centre may be considered.
To promote easy cycling to work and reduce traffic congestion a Perth bicycle transit station is a step forward.
The Station shall provide:
• 24-hour, 7 days/week access to bicycle storage, showers and lockers with key card access.
• Bicycle servicing and retail shop on site.
• Tea, coffee and a bite to eat.
• Wi-Fi access.
• Dry cleaning and laundry services while the cyclists are at work.
Around the globe bicycle stations commonly operate like a health club. They make cycling to work easier, and they build a community.
The Web Site Link above links to a full proposal for the development of a Public Bicycle Transit Station located at 3 Cliff Street, Perth (next to the Jacob’s Ladder, with access from both the top and bottom of the ladder).
Penrith bmx club was formed in 2009 to provide a bmx track for the benefit of the community.
We need your support please if you are interested and want this facility to become a reality sign our petition and get behind what will be the best opportunity for the youth of Cumbria to take part in a Olympic sport at grass roots level.
There's 300 thousands pounds of funding available for this project get behind us. Thanks Penrith bmx club.
George Mason University is rapidly expanding, both in terms of registered students and students who live on campus. Many of these students either have bikes at their dorms or use them on campus.
It is clear when looking at the bike racks both at the dorms and at other locations that they are insufficient. The ones at the dorms tend to be crammed with bikes, while at certain dorms like Liberty and Potomac people even have to lock their bikes to benches. Furthermore, there are only select areas where bike racks are covered, such as Potomac, under Southside, and Commonwealth or Dominion.
Other areas such as Tidewater, the Commons, and the Park leave bikes completely exposed to the elements. Since Mason claims to be a green campus and the student government is supposed to represent us, they should pay attention to our needs in making campus more biker friendly.
The Bloomfield Hills Surf Club was established in 1962 as a private community swim club serving dozens of surrounding communities. In 1966, the I-75 business loop cut through these communities leaving the Surf Club isolated from those communities.
With the population growth in the area over the past 40 years, it is impossible for children to get to and from the Surf Club and the surrounding neighborhoods safely without the use of a motor vehicle. Surrounding the area are numerous bike and pedestrian paths, but none that allow for the safe passage across the 6 lane, I-75 feeder section of Square Lake Road. In addition, the surrounding communities have no access to newer paths connecting to the larger Clintion River Trail and Oakland County trail system.
Without pedestrian access to this area, the community immediately surrounding the Surf Club has no safe access to the Oakland County trail system, and The Surf Club is inaccessible to families that would like to safely visit without the use of a motor vehicle.

Mark Beaumont cycled the world in 195 days, smashing the previous record by 81 days. He endured everything from uncooperative police, to extreme food poisoning, to near-kidnapping by Afghan insurgents.
I, for one, feel that this feat is certainly worthy of Knighthood.
The NRMA is vocal in their opposition of the development of cycling infrastructure in Sydney and is opposing the use of existing roads by cyclists in Sydney during Peak hours.
Despite the increasing congestion, high fuel prices and climate change, the NRMA continues to attack cycling as an alternative method of personal transport for commuters and recreational users.
Cyclists have every right to use the States roads. Cyclists, as a legitimate road user group, are growing in number in direct proportion to the increasing fuel prices. Clearly, MORE cycling infrastructure is required, not more car lanes.
Most cyclists are also car owners. A great many of these car owning cyclists are NRMA members and IAG customers. I would ask these people to reconsider their position on contributing money to an association that opposes theirs, and their communities' cycling needs.
this petition is an aid to a group of youths in the liverpool area who would like to get the council to build a dirt park for bikes.
Hillend used to allow mountainbikers to take their bikes up on the chairlift to access the trails near by.
This service was stopped several years ago and now there are more downhill mountainbikers than ever that would use the chairlift if the ski centre ran the service.
Mountain biking in all its various forms, is fast becoming a top tier sport in Scotland, and Scotland is now regarded as a world class destination for the sport.
There are many bike trails across the country, all promoted heavily by VisitScotland.
However, on the south side of Edinburgh there are few, if any, dedicated facilities for young people taking up the sport.
We believe that the provision of dirt jump facilities in the Buckstone Wood area would be a small step towards encouraging a healthy and positive support for young people in the area.
Since the beginning of all skate parks in North Carolina, they have been primarily targeted to skateboarders.
Many local bikers want a new park for bikes to help the bikers have a place to ride instead of the streets.
The factors have sent various letters requesting that bicycles aren't stored in stairwells.
But there is no other alternative for people who do not want to lock their bikes outside on the limited number of lamposts to rust, other than carrying them up the stairs to the flat, using up precious space.
