Bike South Bend

The City of South Bend has been recognized as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists.  South Bend, one of only 370 communities in the United States to be awarded Bicycle Friendly Community status, received this designation in 2010 for its “remarkable commitments to bicycling.”

Bike South Bend logoDuring the process to develop City Plan (2006), the city's 20-year comprehensive plan, citizens identified encouraging bicycling as an alternate form of transportation as a key priority.  Since then, the City developed a long-term plan for a 123-mile South Bend Bikeway network, aggressively added new bicycle routes, and completed work to finish the riverwalk system from Logan Street to Darden Road.

As of early 2016, about 72.5 miles of bicycle routes have been established within the City.  This total consists of multipurpose paths separated from streets (17.7 miles), striped bike lanes (19.6 miles), and other designated on-street routes (35.2 miles).
