June 2010 - Carmel has been designated a bronze level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists from 2006 through 2012. “We are continually improving facilities for bicycles by making trail connectivity a priority and improving pathways. The 5.2 mile Monon Greenway in Carmel has played a major role in encouraging residents to think about using their bicycles more often as a form of transportation,” said Mayor Brainard.
Bicycling is the most energy-efficient form of travel ever devised and can accommodate almost any level of fitness. It is also good for the environment as it helps reduce air, water and noise pollution. Studies have shown that more than half of all Americans live less than five miles from their place of work, a reasonable distance to bike for people in average physical shape.
