City officials and local cyclists met Tuesday night to discuss creating new "bike boulevards" around Rochester.
The city held the first of two public gatherings to get input on the plan.
It calls for creating bicycle-friendly streets in areas of the city where traffic, parking or other factors make it tough for traditional bicycle lanes.
People had a chance to weigh in on where the routes should be.
News10NBC is told more than 75 people came out to hear about the plan, something planners were happy to see.
“It not only shows there's a need for this, but also there is support in the community which is a really important thing. Rochester has been an innovator and it's great to see this many people here tonight,” said Jeff Olson, Bike Boulevard planner.
