Help us make Milwaukee a better place to ride a bike. Please take the Path to Platinum Community Bicycling Survey and share it with others around Milwaukee.
On Bike To Work Day in June, Mayor Barrett announced the Path to Platinum, which would make Milwaukee one of the leading communities for bicycling in the entire country. Prior to that announcement, we had already established a dedicated core team of volunteers (including representatives from UW-Milwaukee, UW-Extension, Marquette University, Bublr Bikes, Black Girls Do Bike, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, and the Wisconsin Bicycle Federation). We have conducted outreach at events on the north and south sides of the city and are planning additional workshops in the coming months. Based on community feedback, we are likely to advocate for improvements such as more bicycle trails, a network of separated bicycle lanes Downtown and on other major streets, neighborhood greenways (traffic-calmed, bike-friendly local streets) in residential areas, and main roadway crossing improvements.
The mission of the Milwaukee Path to Platinum initiative is: “Engage the whole Milwaukee community to advocate for better bicycling and safer streets for all.”
Our mission emphasizes involving all neighborhoods across the community, including people and groups who have not traditionally been involved in bicycle advocacy. We believe that this will help create a better Milwaukee by supporting health, safety, independence, and prosperity.
