WINNEMUCCA – Local planning officials and bicycling enthusiasts met with representatives of the Nevada Statewide Bicycle Plan on Wednesday the (Nov. 16) to discuss potential improvements and additions that could be made for cyclists in Winnemucca.

The topics of discussion included how to increase local enthusiasm for bicycling among all age groups, the challenges faced by bicyclists travelling through or around Winnemucca, and road signage that could improve and encourage bicycle traffic around town or along the highways.

The statewide Bicycle Plan is an initiative of the Nevada Department of Transportation to improve safety and access for bicyclists touring across Nevada’s highways.  Currently, the project is in its planning phase, focusing on policies, legislation and infrastructure that increase safe bicycling throughout rural communities.

To assist the Statewide Bicycle Plan in its current stage, project organizers request that you take a quick survey about bicycling and your community, found at:  http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NevadaStateWideBicyclePlan
