Bicycling is an important component of the Greater Akron transportation system with the potential to have a significant impact on the future economic, health, and sustainability of the region. Over 108 miles of shared-use paths in the area, including the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail, provide a framework for the regional bicycle network. Encouraging infrastructure projects that create safe connections to destinations and activity centers is critical in creating a bikeable community. AMATS is committed to identifying and promoting bike friendly roadways while continuing to provide bicycle recreation opportunities in the region.
