Help Extend the Reach of The Legacy Trail Extension into the Sarasota Downtown Core
With construction underway to extend the Legacy Trail to Payne Park, here’s more exciting safe cycling news: the city of Sarasota is seeking input to convert two of four traffic lanes along Ringling Blvd into protected bike lanes to facilitate safe transit from the Legacy Trail extension to downtown shops, offices, homes, parks and the bay front.
Let’s give the city resounding support for their forward thinking proposal! Please take the survey. Your support is very important in making this happen!
Additional planning documents related to this project can be found here.

Help Venice Once Again Achieve the
“Bicycle Friendly City” Designation
Each year The League of American Bicyclists awards cities it recognizes as bicycle friendly. Last year the city of Venice was awarded the Silver designation. Award status lasts for one year and Venice has again submitted its application for next year.
As part of the review process, input from local bicyclists and bike advocates about their experiences and perceptions of biking conditions in Venice are obtained through the survey linked below. The survey responses are used both to inform the League’s award decision, as well as to provide (anonymous) local feedback to the applicant community about how they can improve conditions for bicyclists.
You can help Venice win this award by expressing your thoughts in the survey. The last day to take the survey is November 15. Thank you and good luck Venice! Click here to take the survey.
