The Fairhaven Bikeway Committee continues to improve the experience of cyclists and pedestrians on our paths, roadways and sidewalks.
Many of our events are becoming annual traditions for families, local riders and visitors. Spring starts with the Earth Day cleanup in April followed by Bay State Bike Week activities like our group rides exploring the Phoenix Bike Path and local roads. The annual fundraiser, weekly group rides and community events round out the schedule.
This past year saw the installation of rider activated crossing beacons at the path crossing Sconticut Neck Road. Along with previous improvements to help reduce speed along the road we are making this complex area much safer for all road users.
Our Safe Routes to School program continues to draw nearly 30 riders every week in the Spring and Fall. The Wood School Bike Bus is a model for schools around the Commonwealth and is helping to build an active, healthy community of riders.
Finally, we’re turning some attention back to the path and improving the view with plantings and improved signage.
Thank you for your support, and we’ll look for you out on the path!
