This is the bicycle master plan for The Villlages that was prepared by the Bike Friendly Advocacy Group.  We received a Silver award from the League of American Bicyclists (LAB) for 2014-2018 as a Bike-Friendly Community.  We will be re-applying next year and hope to receive a Gold award.  Cycling The Villages is part of this process.  Click on the link to download a PDF file of the document.  Please review it and send any comments, corrections or suggested additions to Diana Mirkin, diana@drmirkin.com
