Bike Indianapolis works with city officials and other organizations to ensure that our public facilities are bicycle friendly. This includes bike lanes, bike trails, greenways, and even bike parking.
We are actively involved with local groups including the Indianapolis Mayor’s Bicycle Advisory Council (IMBAC), the Complete Streets Coalition, the Indianapolis Cycle Commuter Task Force, and the Indianapolis Greenways Development Committee. In addition, we work with Bicycle Indiana on statewide initiatives that impact central Indiana bicycling and are active in national bicycle organizations including the League of American Bicyclists, People for Bikes, and the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals.
Our efforts have helped to extend the Monon Trail hours and to pass an Indianapolis Complete Streets ordinance. We continue to advocate for better bicycle facilities and ordinances throughout central Indiana. If you have suggestions, please contact us.
Bike Indianapolis is a part of a larger group of local, state, and national organizations working to improve bicycling throughout the United States. Our efforts in central Indiana are coordinated with these organizations.
Central Indiana has an ever growing system of bike trails and multi-use paths and greenways, in addition to the many roads with bike lanes. Here are links to notable ones in the area.
Bike Indianapolis has partnered with Bike Index to help you register, report, and recover your bike should it get stolen. You should know that most stolen bicycles do not get recovered, so prevention is the most important step. With enough time, a determined bike thief will most likely succeed in taking your bike. You need to make your bike the hardest bike to steal.
Don’t lock your bike like this!
It is important for you to file a police report quickly so you can get your bike back if it’s found. The more documentation you have, the better your chances of getting to ride your bike again.
