The mission of the Opelika Bicycle Advisory Committee is for Opelika to be recognized as a Bicycle Friendly Community. The next application will be submitted in February 2021. The League of American Bicyclists evaluates the 5 “E’s” including Enforcement. Existing bike lanes must be cared for and respected with increased awareness of upkeep and violations. “Adopt a BikeDawg” will provide a visual catalog of current bike lane conditions.
Your gift will support the adoption of a stenciled “Opelika Bull Dawg” head on the thermoplastic Bike-Man Legend in the bike lanes throughout the City of Opelika. With the blessing of City Engineer Scott Parker, 62 of Opelika’s most frazzled and headless “BikeMan” thermoplastic bike lane pavement legends are up for “adoption.” For $10, an adoptee chooses a location for a “Dawg” stencil to be painted where BikeMan’s head is missing. The adoptee will then receive a personalized adoption photo and monthly e-mail updates from the Opelika Bicycle Advisory Committee.
