Second! Bicycle Infrastructure Tour
BSCPA’s mission is to promote bicycling, increase safety, improve bicycling facilities, advocate for bicycle-friendly policies at the state, regional and local level, and provide a voice for bicyclists in South Central PA.
In response to our mission, we want to showcase the great safety improvements that are being made throughout our region and Lancaster has some of the best examples in their city-wide network. These include contra-flow lanes, on-street bike lanes, bike share, protected parking bike lanes, bike boulevards, traffic calming measures and pedestrian safety improvements.
