All Morgantown residents can enjoy bicycling safely and fearlessly anywhere, anytime, for any reason. Morgantown residents choose to ride bicycles for transportation as well as recreation. Our state and our nation recognize Morgantown for the benefits of bicycling to our health, our environment, our economy and our quality of life.
As a committee of the Traffic Commission, the purpose of the Bicycle Board is to work to make Morgantown a Bicycle Friendly Community as defined by the League of American Bicyclists so as to reduce traffic demands, afford better air quality, and improve public health. Also to make recommendations for improving signage, safety, capacity and facilities for bicycles on streets, trails or other land design or use which supports cycling; advocate for the provision of bicycle travel opportunities to and from locations such as residential, employment, commercial, education, recreation and transit centers; promote the development of safe bicycle routes to schools; and encourage use and enjoyment of bicycling and bicycle safety education in Morgantown.
