Ferguson Township recognized as Outstanding Bicycling Advocate
Monday, 20 October 2014 23:24

Since CRBC's founding in 2000, there has been much activity and progress building cycling facilities regionwide. We took notice that much of that activity has been happening in Ferguson Township. Blue Course Drive, Science Park, Gatesburg Rd,Foxpointe/Autumnwood and now Havershire are just a few of paths that have been opened in the last few years. Preliminary results of our recent poll indicates that they are among the most used paths in the area.Elliot Killian receives Outstanding Bicycling Advocate award for Ferguson Township

Serene and ex comm board member Paul Rito


Ferguson's consideration of cyclists and pedestrians when new developments or new or rehab street projects are proposed is unmatched in the area. There is one reason for that: connectivity. While there are paths here and paths there what sets Ferguson apart is the connectivity. One can ride over 15 miles almost exclusively on off-street paths just in Ferguson Twp. If you include low traffic roads and on-street paths, that mileage increases significantly. They have been extraordinarily responsive to our requests for path maintenance, and the recent improvements on Whitehall Rd both by PennDOT and Ferguson have added a level of safety that has been desperately needed in that corridor. It is well appreciated, as it adds to the safety of all road users, motorists included. Ferguson's planning and execution are a model that the other communities in the area should strive to match. The icing on the cake was the recent announcement that 4 more paths will be maintained in Winter. Without winter maintenance, the network cannot be reliably used for 1/3 or more of the year.

In recognition of outstanding dedication and commitment to making the Centre Region a better place to bicycle we recognize Ferguson Township's contributions with our Outstanding Bicycling Advocate award.

Ferguson joins previous awardees Trish Meek of the Centre Region Council of Governments (2011), and Tom Remick of College Township (2013).

  2. Bike Month – May is bike month. CRBC is not currently planning any major events due to volunteer shortages, but the School district will be holding many events including a photo scavenger hunt, school challenge rides, and bike fair and group rides on May 31st. Stay tuned for more details.
  3. A Centre Region Bicycle Advisory Committee (CRBAC) has been formed from CRBC members, local bike club leaders, COG planners, police, and others. The committee’s purpose is to promote a safe bicycle experience through awareness, proper enforcement, intelligent planning and effective education in the Centre Region. This is part of our next steps in taking the region from Bronze to a Silver Bicycle Friendly Community!
  4. State College Cycling Club’s Tuesday evening road rides have resumed for the season:
