Cycle Sanpete’s mission to work with leaders of Cities, Mayors, City Councils, various city departments, and UDOT to create a friendly and safe environment for all types and levels of cyclists and to promote cycling in and through various cities and towns in Sanpete County to improve traffic congestion, air pollution, health and fitness and to create a better community.
In partnership with the Governor, we’re helping Utah communities build 1,000 new miles of family-friendly bicycle lanes, paths, and trails. In 2017, Governor Herbert initiated the 1,000 Miles Campaign to build 1,000 new miles of family-friendly bike paths, lanes, and trails by
2027. Governor Cox will continue this initiative as he prioritizes active transportation throughout Utah.
So far 664 miles have been built around the state of Utah, and there are 356 miles left remaining in this campaign. Our vision is to claim some of these miles and have a protected two-way bike path that runs throughout Sanpete County alongside US-89. UDOT already has the money allocated for these types of projects- its up to the community and local government to advocate the remaining miles to be built here. A protected two-lane bike path will improve safety and can be enjoyed by cyclists, runners, skateboarders, etc.
We are currently trying to spread awareness on the program. Please advocate with us by sharing this post!
