In June 2006, the City of Salem established the Salem Bike Path Committee, which is a Committee dedicated to making Salem a bike-friendly community. The main goal of this Committee is to make Salem a more-desirable urban environment by establishing safe and well planned on- and/or off-road bike routes for walking and cycling. Objectives of the Committee are to assist in the expansion of the existing bike path throughout Salem and to our surrounding communities, encourage the Safe Routes to Schools Program, advocate for alternative forms of transportation to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality, advocate for bike safety, and encourage cycling both as a form of alternative transportation and as a form of exercise and better health.
The Salem Bike Path Committee meets regularly on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm in Salem City Hall Annex, 120 Washington Street, 3rd Floor Conference Room.
