(Memphis) There is no question Memphis has become a lot more bike friendly, but city planners want to make things are even better for cyclist and pedestrians  in the future and are asking for your help.

The Memphis Metropolitan Planning Organization has created an online survey to find out the biking and walking habits of people in the region.

The MPO includes Memphis and 17 other cities in four counties.

Right now there are about 400 miles of bike lanes and biking and walking trails in the region with plans for 200 miles more.

The goal is one day  have as many as 2,000 miles of bike facilities.

There is a bike and pedestrian public planning meeting March 26th at 5:30 p.m. at the Memphis Central Library.

    What about fixing our roads, or are they in bed with the people who do front end adjustments on your car from all of the messed up streets throughout this city? The MMPO needs to do a review of what matters to most of it’s citizens in this city and stop dreaming that more bike lane is whats going to put this city on the map. We still have trains running right through the main streets of this city, and absolutely no rail system for transportation from one side of the city to the other; this is what potential business people look at when making decisions about relocation to your city, not how many bike lanes you have.
