KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Slowly but surely the streets of KCMO are becoming more welcoming to cyclists.

The city released its first ever bike KC map Tuesday showing their progress to becoming a more bike friendly city.

In the past five years, the city has gone from about six miles of bike lanes and 25 miles of bike trail to 34 miles of bike lanes and 352 miles of signed bike routes.

“It’s all an effort to reduce the carbon footprint and make the roads safer and more enjoyable for cyclists on the open road. Hopefully it will help identify routes for cyclists that we know are bike friendly and where we actually have facilities. So there is signage that corresponds to that for motorists as well as cyclists to know that this is a place where you should expect to see cyclists,” said Deb Ridgeway the city’s Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinator.
