City residents bike to work

NORMAN — The completion of the bicycle-friendly Main Street overpass and the plan for the first designated bicycle lanes on a county section line road were celebrated by local cyclists Friday at Norman’s annual Bike to Work Day rally.

Several dozen cyclists and supporters attended the morning rally at Andrews Park. It was the ninth rally for Norman, which received a bike-friendly community designation in 2011.

James Briggs of the city’s parks and recreation department said the completed Main Street overpass and the planned Lindsey Street overpass on I-35 will help cyclists safely cross the interstate.

Bicycle committee member Tom Woodfin said the designated bicycle lanes planned for Cedar Lane in southeast Norman may be a first for the state.

The annual event, held in conjunction with the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments, included four options for group rides to the rally. Rally door prizes included a bicycle, accessories, gift certificates, T-shirts and Westwood swim passes.
