New Bedford Bicycle Committee

New Bedford Bicycle Committee held its first official meeting at City Hall on 11/17/11 in collaboration with Mass in Motion New Bedford and the City of New Bedford (Planning, Office of Housing and Community Development, Health Dept. and Parks, Recreation and Beaches).

Their mission is to advocate and increase awareness for bicyclists in the city of New Bedford who use their bikes for transportation and recreational activities. They strive to connect all of New Bedford by bike, allowing for a safe & enjoyable mode of transportation. In doing so, they hope to give bicyclists, runners, rollerbladers and all other pedestrians an alternate way to view the beauty of New Bedford from different vantage points. More importantly, they want to give greater access to those who choose an alternate mode of transportation to commute to work, play, & live more fully in and around New Bedford.
