ADVOCATING FOR BETTER, SAFER BICYCLING

 

LEBANON VALLEY BICYCLE COALITION is a 501c-3 organization founded in  2008 to make the Lebanon Valley region of Pennsylvania, a better, safer place to bicycle. We work with elected officials and municipal, county and state governments to make certain that new road projects or redesigns consider the needs of bicyclists. We want cyclists to have the necessary skills to be able to bicycle for their transportation, recreation and health. We offer bike rides because we enjoy cycling together. Volunteering will give us more momentum! 

Join LVBC as we strive for a safer, more convenient, and less stressed bicycle transportation network in the Lebanon Valley and region. You are joining an advocacy community who cares about bicyclists of all ages, skills and incomes. The 2017 membership dues is any contribution that you are willing to provide.  You can join by PayPal which allows for use of a credit card or you can pay by check.  Go to "Contribute" at the Menu Bar to access the form or pay on line through PayPal.  Your contribution is tax deductible. 

 

 

Bicycle Auditing SR 422 in Derry Township

  

In 2018, PennDOT will resurface SR 422 between Orchard Avenue and Lingle Avenue.  Pat Krebs, representing LVBC,  met with Derry Township officials including Supervisors John Foley and Justin Engle and Economic Development staff, Chuck Emerick and Lauren Zumbrun.  PennDOT Bike Ped Coordinator Roy Gothie also attended to ask them to consider an on road, SR 322, demonstration project with bike lanes.  The meeting was very positive.    Next, a bicycling audit was needed beyond what LVBC had done several years ago.    LVBC members Mike Sheehan, Fred Richter and Pat Krebs volunteered to audit and develop their findings for the Township and PennDOT 8-0.  Discussion about what is possible to improve the safety of bicyclists  within the limits of  both the PennDOT and the Hershey Downtown projects will be forthcoming.
