Bikeway & Pedestrian Committee

Bicycle Friendly Community SurveySandwich Town Seal Extra Small

The SBPC recently submitted an application to The League of American Bicyclists to be assessed as a Bicycle Friendly Community. Regardless of whether Sandwich meets the conditions to be designated as a BFC, the assessment provides a road map for making the town more bicycle-friendly.

Part of the application process includes a public survey for residents, cyclists and advocates to share their experiences and perceptions.

The survey is available now, and should take 10-15 minutes to complete. Aggregated, anonymous responses will be shared with SBPC as part of the BFC Feedback Report.

The survey is open through March 24. In addition to submitting your responses, please share with your fellow residents and cyclists. The more feedback we have, the better.
