Pontiac — New bicycle loops, repair stations and signs are part of an effort to make the Pontiac area more accessible to cyclists.

Improvements recently were made in downtown Pontiac to help riders get to the library, downtown businesses and city parks from the Clinton River Trail.

The Friends of the Clinton River Trail and the “Healthy Pontiac, We Can! Coalition” announced details about the updates Wednesday.

Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson and the office of Pontiac Mayor Deirdre Waterman are among those involved the effort. In a statement, Patterson says: “This is a major quality of life improvement for residents in the Pontiac area.”
