"This community values biking, and other alternatively powered ways to move around town. Whether it's for exercise, recreation, or a daily commute, you can find a lot of folks riding two wheels in Indiana."
- Council Vice-President Gerald Smith
Indiana Borough is a community that is committed to making bicycling easier and safer for our residents.
In 2019, a project to extend the Hoodlebug Trail and connect it to our downtown area was completed. This enables local riders the ability to easily move around town and have access to a miles-long regional trail network.
Indiana Borough also has an active Bike-Ped Committee. The Committee meets monthly to discuss ways to promote and advocate for active transportation access and safety within Indiana Borough and the surrounding area. They meet monthly on the 4th Wednesday of the month from 5:30 – 6:30 PM. If you're interested in joining the committee, feel free to send an email or reach out on Facebook!
Cycling events and programs happen regularly in Indiana Borough. The Police Department helps to coordinate a Critical Mass and Bike To School & Work Day event each year. Also, the "Earn-a-Bike Program" offered through the Chevy Chase Community Center provides youth ages with knowledge about bike repair and bike safety. Participants that complete the Earn-a-Bike program receive a bike for free, donated by the community.
We are proud to be a leader in promoting biking for transportation and recreation purposes.
