New Program Aims to Promote Bicycle Safety in Spearfish

A new grant-funded bicycle program aims to improve safety and accessibility for cycling commuters in Spearfish, reports KOTA TV. Bike Spearfish has been formed by a collaboration between Black Hills State University and Hills Horizon, and is funded by the Wharf Fund and the South Dakota Community Foundation.

As part of the safety promotion efforts, the Spearfish Police Department released a commuter safety guide which is available at the department. The City of Spearfish will be installing bicycle signs to designate roads which have less traffic as bicycle use areas.

The program will also help celebrate National Bike to Work Week, May 15-19. A basic traffic safety course will be held at Black Hills State University on May 20.
