Henderonville Awarded Grant by NCDOT

 NCDOT Awards 2015 Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Grants: Hendersonville is one of 10 municipalities from across the state slated to receive assistance with bicycle planning, thanks to grants awarded this month by the N.C. Department of Transportation.   Plans funded are not for one specific project, but represent a comprehensive strategy for expanding bicycle and pedestrian opportunities within a given municipality. These plans address facilities, programs, services and regulations that encourage safe walking and bicycling.  

 

And please be sure to thank your Blue Ridge Bicycle Club President, Joe Sanders for his help in making this happen.  He worked closely with the City of Hendersonville to get this grant written and presented on time

 Healthy Lifestyles

 

The Blue Ridge Bicycle Club is considering developing a “Healthy Lifestyles” bicycle ride program using the exercise guidelines mentioned in the document found in this link:  Healthy Lifestyles Document. We are not sure if this will be part of an existing ride program or a new program.  We would like input from anyone interested in participating in these rides to help structure the program.

 

Please contact Charlie Clogston if you have an interest in this type of ride with any suggestions you might have.  His email is treasurer@blueridgebicycleclub.org.
