Posted by Hrushikesh Chavan on July 10, 2023

On 07/10/2023 Sarthak and Hrushikesh had a meeting with Adam Bleakney (Disability Sports Coach at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign)

Meeting Notes:

- Introduced Adam about the Campus Bike Plan

- His Suggestions:

- The Athletes take mainly two routes for training, primary route starting from Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES) to Stadium Dr, S 1st St, E Peabody, S 4th St, St Marys Rd, S Oak St, W Kirby Ave and back to S 1st St forming a Loop/ Circuit. Thus, maintenance of this circuit is vital.

- Secondary route consists of E Peabody, S 6th St, E Pennsylvania Ave, Race St

- Preferred to have street level bike lane.

- Usual speed of the athletes is 10-20 mph/hr.

- Connection with Oak St has been a concern.
