Akron Area Bike User's Map Meeting

Attention all Akron cyclists!

The Akron Metropolitan Area Transportation Study (AMATS) needs your input on their final draft Bike User’s Map. Cyclists are invited to review the road ratings before the map is finalized and offered to the public as a tool for getting around town on bike. The map ‘rates’ all the major roads with a rating of Easy, Moderate, Difficult, or Very Difficult.

Join AMATS on Thursday, June 16th at 6pm in the Highland Square Library to critique the map.

Why should you attend?
  • Cyclists know the streets and paths they ride.
  • Cyclists need good maps to plan routes.
  • Your input is needed!
AMATS is asking cyclists to edit the Bike User’s Map because they believe collaboration is the best way to provide a comprehensive map that's truly useful to cyclists of all experience levels.

When: Thursday, June 16, 2011, 6:00pm
Where: Highland Square Library, 807 W. Market Street, Akron, OH 44303
