Planning for a premier bicycle and pedestrian region…

Bicycling and walking are integral to an efficient transportation network, and the Cape Cod Commission is committed to improving conditions for bicyclists and pedestrians throughout the region. Expanding the Cape’s existing bicycle and walking facilities to provide a regional network of connected bicycle routes, shared-use paths, and sidewalks supports our residential neighborhoods, economic centers, and recreation areas. The Commission is launching a bicycle and pedestrian program initiative to create that network and improve safety, facilities, and access for cyclists and walkers throughout Cape Cod.

A strong bicycle and pedestrian network draws people out of their cars. The benefits of walking and biking, whether for recreational or transportation purposes, include improved environmental and personal health, reduced traffic congestion, and enhanced quality of life, as well as economic benefits for the community. With the addition of safe and convenient bicycle and pedestrian facilities connecting to downtowns, beaches, workplaces, schools, transit, and other destinations, more people — Cape Cod residents and visitors alike — will be able to bike or walk to their destinations and leave the cars behind. An expanded bicycle/pedestrian network will also promote recognition of bicycles and walking as an essential component of the Cape‘s multi-modal transportation system and means to reduce reliance on automobiles.

Our Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Program initiative seeks to establish Cape Cod as a premier bicycling and pedestrian-friendly region.
