This week, City Parish President Joey Durel declared the month of April to be Lafayette Bike Month. Lafayette Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the power of bicycles and the many reasons we ride. Bike Lafayette, T.R.A.I.L. and Lafayette Consolidated Government will all be planning Bike Month activities, including FestiVELO de Lafayette on Sunday April 7.

LCG's Metropolitan Planning Organization also voted unanimously this week to adopt a dedicated goal to allocate 10% of Annual Urban Systems funds for bicycle and pedestrian improvements in greater Lafayette. Very important, with the increasing number of incidents happening. 



Keep up with Bike Lafayette.
See how Bike Lafayette needs volunteers!
Brush up on local bike statutes, safety tips and plans.
Read The Advertiser's coverage of this week's council meeting where April was named Bike Month and the MPO voted to dedicate funding.

Have a great weekend, and if you're so inclined, leave the four wheels at home and hop on your two wheels!
