RTC releases updated bikeways map
The Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission has released its new, updated bikeways map. The full color map features bicycle lanes, paths and alternate routes within Santa Cruz County. It also shows detailed insets of the communities of San Lorenzo Valley, Scotts Valley, and Watsonville, as well as the Santa Cruz to La Selva Beach areas. Map users also will find major attractions, schools, transit centers, bike shops, parks, campgrounds and hostels on the map. The new map also has updated phone numbers and websites to bicycle organizations and, for the first time ever, provides contact information to law enforcement. Another first for the map: off-road trails for riders who would like to commute ore recreationally ride away from vehicle traffic. Meanwhile, map users also will find safety tips in both English and Spanish. “The bike map is the RTC’s most requested publication and the RTC is very pleased to offer this very useful transportation resource to Santa Cruz County residents and visitors free of charge," said George Dondero, the RTC's executive director. "The RTC’s goal of facilitating the use of all transportation modes is aided by providing a means for new and seasoned bicycle users to choose routes on which they feel most comfortable traveling.” The 24 X 36 inch map folds down to 4 X 9 inches, making it a cinch to carry while riding a bike. The maps can be found in local bike shops, libraries, and at Commute Solutions outreach events, Bike to Work/School Week events and other locations. The RTC also issues bike maps by request. Simply stop by the office at 1523 Pacific Avenue, Santa Cruz, CA 95060 or call(831) 460-3200. The map also is on the agency's website at www.sccrtc.org/bikemap.html.
