Jefferson City staff is encouraging residents to take a survey regarding their bicycling experiences in the community.

Jefferson City applied for a bicycle-friendly community designation through nonprofit League of American Bicyclists earlier this year.

The survey is available at

It is open until March 24.

The city applied for the designation last year and received an honorable mention.

The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization applied to be a bicycle-friendly community in 2014 but was denied.

Jefferson City added more bicycle lanes, racks and education over the last year, City Engineer David Bange said. The city now has a bike-share program and other similar programs.

"There are some really neat things that have happened, but ultimately, we thought there's maybe enough progress made over the last year that we stand a better chance this time," he said, noting the application process gives city staff ideas for potential bicycling.
