Public invited to comment on county bike map

In 2008, Clackamas County released Bike It! — a full-color, full-size, waterproof map showing the entire county on one side and the urban area of the county on the other side. The map includes 10 recommended bike rides in urban and rural portions of the county.

More information is available at clackamas.us/engineering/map.html.

The county plans to update the map later this year and would like to hear from current and future bicyclists about what they want to see in a new edition.

The survey is available at surveymonkey.com/r/BikeClackamas through Monday, March 16. Members of the public who would like a paper copy of the survey, or more information, should contact Clackamas County Community Relations Specialist Ellen Rogalin at ellenrog@clackamas.us or 503-742-4274.
