Cycling in Ypsi

The Ann Arbor News had a nice piece on how easy it is to get around Ypsilanti by bike along with quotes from local cyclists. They also point out the improved bike access between Ypsi and A2 via the cross-county bike path. Bob Krzewinski says,"A lot of people don't realize that you can hop on your bike right now, and, pretty much, when you're on the west side of Ypsilanti ride on bike paths pretty much all the way into Ann Arbor''It seems that, if they continue along this path, Ypsi could easily outpace Ann Arbor in the race for the Bike Friendly Community (BFC) platinum level. The League of American Bicyclists runs this program that acknowledges community efforts to accommodate and promote cycling with bronze, silver, gold and platinum rankings. In 2005, Ann Arbor was awarded a bronze level. It would be great to see someone from Ypsi submit an application this year.
