Topeka Bikeway Master Plan

Let's see more of this in Topeka

What wonderful news Capital-Journal photographer Ann Williamson sent to me today. The city of Topeka is creating a master plan to develop logical and safe opportunities for Topekans to use bicycles. A bikeway master plan is a fabulous step to make Topeka an even better city. Steps like this and their follow through can only make Topeka more attractive to many new businesses and residents.

Bicycles are growing in their use and importance throughout the United States. With proper lanes and pathways, Topeka can see a greater use of bicycles for a much wider variety of activities. Streets will be safer for cyclists and drivers alike. The health benefits can be enormous. The joy a bicycle brings to any rider is unmatched. Even if you never plan to ride a bicycle, you will benefit by supporting this initiative.

Please take the time and go to

Fill out the survey. Bookmark the site. Hold city officials responsible and truly get behind this plan. We need bicycle lanes, bicycle boulevards, shared streets and off-street paths along with proper education and enforcement.

Let’s do this right. Hurdles can be overcome. This is all possible, as many cities have proven. This truly is wonderful news.
