Calling all Biking Enthusiasts

A biker enjoys the beautiful Indiana Dunes Country foliage

Do you love biking in Indiana Dunes Country, and have noticed some streets are great, while others seem to be more treacherous? Or maybe you want to bike more often, but aren’t sure which routes are best.

The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission is now underway developing an update of their highly-successful 2008 Northwest Indiana Bike Map. They have contracted with the Active Transportation Alliance (ATA) from Chicago to put together the update, which will now involve blueways, or water trail access points, as well.

In order to successfully map out the streets in our region, NIPRC is asking for VOLUNTEERS to ride these streets, and report back on their conditions. Staff from ATA will train you, and this session will take place on Saturday, October 29th from 10:30am-Noon at Valparaiso City Hall.

If you are interested, please contact Mitch at, or just show up!

NIRPC and ATA thanks you for your assistance!
