We can travel substantial distances fast on bicycle, which makes almost no noise, uses no fossil fuels, and produces no emission. Vermillion have developed and maintained the foundation of a strong trail system, created a bicycle culture in which a substantial number of basic transportation trips are made by bike, established an initial system of shared bike routes, and initiated a highly successful pilot bike-share program. This Bicycle Master Plan Study is dedicated to encouraging its citizens to make healthy, low-impact, and intrinsically pleasant transportation a greater part of their daily routines. While we know that most trips will continue to be made by car, the region’s transportation system should offer choices, including the option to feel safe and comfortable using the healthy, sustainable, and socially satisfying means of mobility that the bicycle offers.
