We have a multi-step plan we’d like to see implemented:

  1. Connect all parks and schools with bike lanes or paths;

  2. Connect all existing and future bike lanes and paths to each other;

  3. Encourage cities in the high desert to cooperate with each other to ensure bike lanes don’t end at city limits;

  4. Convert South Outer Hwy 18 to one-way going east, North Outer Hwy 18 to one-way going west, and use this as a central spine through Apple Valley to promote cycling and other forms of exercise;

  5. Encourage local schools, parks, and businesses to offer bike racks;

  6. Become recognized as a Bike-Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists; and

  7. Incorporate our bike system with the U.S. Bicycle Route System.
