Paving the Way for Safer Cycling in Warren County NY

OUR MISSION

To promote safe & quality bicycling in Warren County, NY.

Bicycling friendly communities offer excellent commuter options, reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, expand economic development, reduce health related costs, and enhance recreational opportunities; all of which give residents improved quality of life and non-residents incentive to visit.

OUR ACTION PLAN

To advance this mission, WCSQBO collaborates with New York State, Warren County, local governments, the Adirondack/Glens Falls Transportation Council, along with other bicycling groups, residents, and visitors to:

  • Review availability of multi-use and off-road bicycling trails. Work collaboratively with the county and municipalities to improve existing trails and construction of new trails.
  • Advocate to improve the conditions of state, county, and local paved driving lanes and shoulders of roads throughout Warren County. Advocate for the construction of separate bicycle lanes.
  • Promote and encourage a healthy life-style for community members and visitors by offering a variety of safe-bicycling educational programs and experiences for all levels of bicyclists, both on-road and off-road.
  • Monitor and evaluate bicycling conditions within the County. Work with Warren County and A/GFTC to create maps of recommended bicycle routes to assist both recreational bicyclists and bicycling commuters.

OUR 2016 ACCOMPLISHMENTS

  • Collaborated with Warren County Tourism Department on 2 new Bicycling promotions: “Bring your Bike” Campaign to encourage visitors to bring their bikes and ride our scenic roads and trails; & the “Warren County Cycle Challenge”, an on-going invitation to ride a diverse combination of on-road and off-road bicycle routes throughout Warren County.  Riders complete any 8 rides to receive a completion certificate, a window sticker, and  their names posted on www.bikewarrenco.org website.
