Biking and Walking Safety Resources

If you’ve had a chance to be outside over the past few weeks, you will have noticed a significant increase in the number Bath citizens out and about walking and biking.  One of the outcomes of people staying safe at home is that they are discovering the possibility of getting exercise and just enjoying the outdoors right where they live.  One of the benefits of living in Bath, Maine, is that we can do this simply by walking out our front door, and enjoying miles of roads, sidewalks and as well as access to trails in local preserves.

While it may be the case that vehicle traffic is reduced during this time, with an increase in walkers and bikers it’s important, now more than ever, that everyone involved be aware of some basic safety guidelines for biking and walking.

The following resources provided by the Bicycle Coalition of Maine only take a few minutes to review. Please share with your family and friends.
