Evansville hopes to become bicycle friendly community

Posted: Updated:

The City of Evansville is hoping to be able to call itself a bicycle friendly community. 

Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke says it's places like the Greenway that he would like to see more residents riding bicycles.

Mayor Winnecke has now formed a new bicycle friendly community task force. The new group met on Tuesday at the mayor's office.
 
The goal is for Evansville to achieve bicycle friendly status. In turn, the mayor says the city would benefit by having a healthier community. It could also be used to help attract families to the area.

The city is currently working on an application process, that has to be in by February of next year.
