Ride Safe with these Pedestrian Safety Tips
BikeWalk BG is a movement seeking to encourage biking and walking for all of Bowling Green. We want to empower you to get out and move – to feel safe and enjoy your adventure whether you’re walking, running, or biking – by yourself, with friends, or with your kids. We’re working to take a more comprehensive and collective approach to not only encouraging biking and walking, but also to the planning efforts that help to create a safer, efficient, and more connected multimodal transportation system.
BikeWalk BG is powered by you, but is carried out by multiple agencies in many different facets. Building a connected sidewalk network, constructing Greenways facilities, and installing bike lanes takes a lot more thought and effort than you might think. It takes time, resources, and communication to plan priorities, then pursue them. The Bowling Green-Warren County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) oversees planning efforts for biking and walking facilities, while working with both the City of Bowling Green and Warren County Public Works and Parks & Recreation Departments, along with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 3 to carry out the design, right-of-way acquisition, utility relocation, and construction phases of the projects. If you want to learn more or participate in these efforts, join us at our next meeting.

Natural corridors in Warren County include river frontage, stream valleys, or ridgelines. Man-made corridors include abandoned railroad lines, utility rights-of-way, or scenic highways. AGreenbelt is a network of greenspaces and greenways that can encircle as well as infiltrate a community.
The MPO’s Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) provides guidance on bicycle and pedestrian needs and projects in the MPO area. The BPAC is comprised of citizens and local and state government representatives. We are always seeking public input on biking and walking initiatives in our community – join us at our meetings, which are always open to the public. The committee meets at 4:00 PM on the second Monday of every even-number month.
