Thank you for making Roswell a Bicycle-Friendly Community.
Because of you,
-Roswell’s streets are safer
-Our citizens who ride are healthier and they can travel around town without getting in a car.
-Good people are moving to Roswell to live in a bicycle-friendly community
-Local business are making more money, starting with our bike shops
-Bicycling events are benefitting local charities, like the Hospitality Highway Century that benefitted the Ga. Transplant Organization.
-Being designated as a Bicycle-Friendly City has improved our image.
You are not just helping Roswell, you are helping the state.
-By riding to the Capitol every march you are to influencing state legislation.
-By becoming a Bicycle Friendly city you are a model for other cities.
-Everyone here tonight who is not already a member of Bike Roswell should join because if you don’t own a bicycle Bike Roswell is good for Roswell and deserves your support.
With your leadership, Roswell will become a Platinum Level Bicycle-Friendly Community.
Before the end of this year we will open a new multi-purpose trail along Holcomb Bridge Road so that you can ride from Horseshoe Bend to East Roswell Park and the rest of the city.
Whenever we re-pave a street, we are widening the pavement and narrowing the lanes from 12′ to 11′ to give you more room to ride.
We are planning a multipurpose loop trail around Roswell connecting our neighborhoods to all our parks.
The Criterium will be returning to Canton Street next year. Among other improvements, I have suggested to Eric Broadwell that we add a parade of decorated bikes.
I would appreciate your vote on November 3rd so I can continue to make Roswell even more Bicycle Friendly.
