This summer seemed to bring a surge of cyclists to Orangetown and destinations to its north and west. But no one is quite sure.
Orangetown wants to quantify the surge. And they’re doing so with a little bit of help from an upstate non-profit and community volunteers who want to make cycling safer and easier in the town’s villages and hamlets.
At 7p on Sept 7, Orangetown will kick off the Orangetown Bike Study, with a meeting lead by led by Parks & Trails NY (PTNY) at Orangetown Town Hall. Community members, cyclists, parents, land use board members and business owners are invited to attend. The study is intended to document usage, map routes and help plan for tomorrow.
