New Countywide Bicycle Map Now Available
Redwood City, CA - August 12, 2009 - More and more people are bicycling - to and from work, for recreation and exercise, shopping, or for errands. And now there’s a new San Mateo County-wide bicycle map that will help all bicyclists find a variety of routes to their destinations.
Produced by the City/County Association of Governments (C/CAG) of San Mateo County, this map includes designated bikeways outlined by classification, as well as unofficial routes suggested by bicyclists. This is a useful tool for planning bike commutes to work, or any other bike trip.
The easiest way to get the map is to go online, where you can view and print specific pages that you need, or all pages. You’ll find the map on the C/CAG website, at www.ccag.ca.gov/plans_reports.html (scroll down to find the bike maps). Redwood City bicyclists are also invited to purchase the map for $1 right at City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road. Other cities on the peninsula also have copies of the map. Or, you can purchase the map at the C/CAG offices in Redwood City at 555 County Center, 5th Floor (C/CAG’s phone number is 599-1406).
The City/County Association of Governments (www.ccag.ca.gov) is a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) created by the 20 cities in San Mateo County and the County, which performs six County-wide functions: transportation planning and State/ Federal fund programming; AB434 Transportation Fund for Clean Air (TFCA); National Pollution Discharge Elimination System Storm Water Program; Abandoned Vehicle Abatement Program; Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC); and Solid Waste Program.
