Bicycling and Walking Resources
Throughout New Ulm, many people have been diligently and enthusiastically working to help make it easier and safer for everyone to bike or walk in our community and we’re proud to be a Bicycle Friendly Community. We encourage you to get out and get active! Join us in making use of the designated bike path, and all of the other wonderful biking opportunities available in New Ulm and surrounding areas.
Safe Routes to School
The Safe Routes to School Action Team is working to make it safer for children to walk and bike to school by addressing the top three concerns that parents have identified: speed of traffic, the amount of traffic and uncontrolled intersections.
Complete Streets Planning and Policy
The Coalition for Active, Safe and Healthy Streets (CASHS) is working to promote health by improving safety for everyone when walking or bicycling. In 2016, the New Ulm City Council adopted a Complete Streets Policy to ensure streets are planned and designed to be accessible and safe for all users, including people walking or biking.
