What is Take Bike the Streets?

Take Bike The Streets is a comprehensive program that involves community engagement, economic development and intergenerational environmental education. Our volunteers have committed to organize, decide and act upon projects that will profoundly change our community’s future.The goal of Take Bike the Streets is to capitalize on the NWI’s diverse active transportation needs and implement a multiphase project that makes cycling an accessible and enjoyable activity for all our community and our visitors. (Take Bike the Streets was founded by Access Miller, which was established in 2015 from the Transportation and Infrastructure SWOT data gathered by Gary's Miller Spotlight's steering committee. Access Miller is one of 7 volunteer groups that created SMAART Goals as part of the 5 Year Community Plan. Take Bike the Streets was established to help address Goal #2 on Page 69. Our Access Miller volunteers have helped this original goal become a regional movement.) #TakeBikeTheStreets 

Come join the TAKE BIKE THE STREETS volunteers for the 9th Season of the Ken Parr Build a Bike at our new location in the Farmer's Market Lot (665 S. Lake St Gary, IN 46403).

With 19% of Gary, Indiana's population solely depending on public transportation, biking is more than a recreational activity. In a city of 77,000 and 54 square miles (10 miles larger than San Fransisco) our active transportation needs are both of an urban and rural city. Take Bike the Streets was founded by Access Miller, which was established in 2015 from the Transportation and Infrastructure SWOT data gathered by Gary's Miller Spotlight's steering committee. Access Miller is one of 7 volunteer groups that created SMAART Goals as part of the 5 Year Community Plan. Take Bike the Streets was established to help address Goal #2 on Page 69. Our Access Miller volunteers have helped this original goal become a regional movement. #TakeBikeTheStreets
