Wish Valdosta could have a Mayor like Darwin Hindman, former mayor of Columbia, MO. He helped get his city $25 million in Federal Funding to promote biking and walking as an alternative to driving.


Valdosta could really benefit from more bike paths, it's good exercise, it's cheaper then driving a car, it's better for the environment, and it's fun!

Plus being in the south we have nice weather all year long!

Ms Reed,
Valdosta adopted a master bike/pedistrian plan a couple of years ago. We are in the process of implementing it now. Go to the city website and find the link for more details. You will also see it included in our T-SPLOST project list.

Thanks, I have a copy of it at home, it's not that good, it was put together by a group from Tallahassee the pictures of "down town Valdosta" are not even of Valdosta.

But something is better then nothing!

I would love to see some of the "cow trails" (I think that's what the worn paths where sidewalks/bike paths should be are referred as) paved!

I see no reason why Valdosta couldn't be connected by a series of bike trails (not bike lanes, I prefer not to ride my bike next to the giant SUV's and trucks folks around here like to drive), it would be such a great fit for this community, college students who could save money by not having to have a car and all the expenses that go with it, seniors who may not feel 100% comfortable driving but still want to be active, and also less traffic on our roads and less pollution in our air!
