High Country Bike Plan Survey under way

High Country Council of Governments is developing a bike plan for Yancey, Mitchell, Avery, Watauga, Ashe, Alleghany and Wilkes counties.

The plan is intended to improve safety, access and mobility for cyclists by developing a network of designated routes that connect municipalities and other major destinations in the region.

The plan will identify needed improvements to existing roadways, prioritize the improvements and develop a signage plan to mark the identified routes.

As part of the planning process, a citizen survey has been developed to gather input on current cycling use, challenges, and desired improvements. The survey consists of 23 questions, and is geared toward cyclists and noncyclists alike.

The survey is available online through Survey Monkey. The website address is

The survey will be available online through May 4. It will take 10 to 12 minutes to complete the survey.

For more information about the survey, contact High Country Council of Governments at (828) 265-5434.

The council is one of 16 multi-county planning regions in the state and serves as a cooperative extension of local governments. The agency was established in 1974 by the member governments as provided for in N.C. General Statutes.
