News To Use

Time to get rid of bollards on our trails. Tell your story.

Bike/Walk Central Florida is collecting stories from Central Florida bicyclists who have had close encounters of the bad kind with “bollards,” those wacky, tacky, uh-oh… smacky posts used to keep cars off of trails. Based on feedback we have received from area cyclists, we are planning to work with Orange and Seminole counties to have these hazards removed from our trails. Our initial contact with Orange County was rebuffed, on the grounds that they’ve had an “insignificant” number of complaints … and yet, we all seem to know someone who has hit a bollard.

If you struck a bollard in Central Florida, please fill out the form below. If you are part of a cycling club or community, please poll your members/email lists and forward to any other groups/shops you can think of, and ask them to send me their stories.

Thank you!
