City of Milwaukee "Bicycle Milwaukee" Plan

The City of Milwaukee adopted its first formal bicycle plan – Bicycle Milwaukee – in 1993. Bicycle Milwaukee set numerous goals and objectives designed to increase the safety and ease of bicycling in Milwaukee. The major recommendations of that plan were achieved with many new bicycle lanes and routes implemented and bike parking added throughout the city, the construction of several new off-street trails, and the addition of a full time Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator to the Department of Public Works staff.
