Bicycling

As National Bike Month gets underway in May, the City of Carbondale is expanding its bike network.

For instance, the multi-use path at University Mall will be extended to Reed Station Road and a traffic study is underway to determine if bike lanes could be added between Main Street and Grand Avenue.

This time of year, cycling is many people's choice to get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors.

But, a study by Yale researchers in 2006 linked cycling to problems with sexual health and urinary dysfunction. Now, a new team of scientists disputes those results.
