The increasing popularity of bicycling has led to an increase in demand for quality bike paths, providing a new business opportunity for concrete suppliers. The place to start is with the local department of public works and local park districts. Discuss the benefits, design, construction, maintenance and cost of using concrete. Concrete bikeways are as easy to build as sidewalks. The same quality concrete and construction principles apply to both. Before making a call on the local decision-maker, be prepared to talk about cost, and make sure to check out some reference projects as well.
