With over 18 miles of on-street bike lanes, 40.8 miles of share-the-road lanes, and 27.6 miles of off-street recreational trails — along with state and local laws that are observed and enforced to protect bicyclists — Shawnee strives to enable safe and enjoyable bicycling experiences for residents and visitors.
