A bikeable town is more affordable for residents—who can save thousands of dollars every year if they have the option to bike instead of drive. It also builds healthier communities, both financially and physically.  

A bikeable town is also more affordable for the community as a whole. Bike infrastructure is far cheaper to maintain than car infrastructure and results in more financially productive places—not to mention healthier, safer citizens (including drivers).

We can take incremental, low-cost steps to make our towns more bike-friendly and safe for cyclists of all ages.
