Ann Arbor’s First Street bikeway with new green paint markings on Sept. 10, 2021. ANN ARBOR, MI — Ann Arbor is seeking to renew its Bicycle Friendly Community status with the League of American Bicyclists and asking cyclists to give input.

Part of the review process includes hearing from residents about experiences and perceptions of bicycling in Ann Arbor.

Those who want to weigh in can do so by taking a brief online survey here.

The survey asks residents questions such as how often they ride a bicycle, how satisfied they are with how the community is designed for safe bicycle riding and what’s the No. 1 change they want to see the city make for cyclists.

It also asks cyclists to share concerns about specific hazards or barriers to cycling, ways the city can become more bicycle-friendly, and which cycling initiatives they appreciate.

Ann Arbor’s getDowntown Program is celebrating Bike to Work Day 7-9 a.m. Friday, Sept. 17, with “many stations throughout town with goodies to keep you riding into the fall,” according to a Facebook event page.

Stations are planned at Sic Transit Cycles, People’s Food Co-Op, both Argus Farm Stop locations, York, Wheels in Motion and Motor City Bicycle, as well as at Hanover Square Park with Common Cycle and RoosRoast Coffee, according to a list and map of the stations on the getDowntown website.Ann Arbor SPARK also is being added as a station, said Jaime Magiera, one of the Bike to Work Day organizers.
