Call for Riders, Walkers, Drivers and Wheelchair Users in South Bend, Indiana


A coalition of local citizens seeking to promote road-sharing awareness and enhance area transportation safety announces its inaugural Share the Road….Every Life Counts procession, Wednesday, May 2. This event is the first of its kind featuring a positive, proactive approach to urge road-sharing awareness. All citizens are encouraged to join the Share the Road….Every Life Counts procession.

The procession can be joined by bicyclists, motorcyclists and motorists at the Medical Plaza parking lot immediately north of the Indiana 23 Toll Road overpass at 5:30 p.m. Citizens wishing to walk, parents with strollers and wheelchair users will meet at Howard Park at 6:15.

Both legs of the procession will conclude at the north side of the County-City building in downtown South Bend. A news conference highlighting the need for understanding and mutual respect among public transportation pathway users will be held at 7:00 p.m. and will feature procession organizers, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and other elected officials.

    Cyclists returning from downtown to the procession starting point will pick their own routes. There are 3 suggestions: 1) return the same way they came; 2) an 8.5 mile route at http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/87951299 or 3) a 10 mile route at http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/87951587

    To view these routes, copy and paste the http address into your browser window. And be patient, because the maps load rather slowly.

    Thanks for your interest Christy. As you know, I have replied to you ‘offline’. Others with a similar interest can comment, and I will give you specifics. I am not making the information generally available at this time, because our supplies of decals are limited.
