How an Indiana town got a bicycle map

Richmond Indiana bike map
Cycling advocates in Richmond, Indiana wanted a bike map to help promote the use of bicycles around their city. The city didn't have the funds to develop and print a bike map, so Mark Stosberg and other cyclists started an advocacy group, identified cycling routes, presented the maps idea to the city staff, looked at other good bike maps for ideas, designed the map, figured out printing costs, and did fundraising.

It's a really cool story that Mark has written up as a How To Guide to creating a local bike map.

That's really cool. Thanks for highlighting the story. I'm hoping someday to have something similar all across Los Angeles.

Thanks for dropping by, Gary.

What about Metro's LA County Bike Map?
