Bicyclists, rejoice! Springfield is officially the most bike-able neighborhood in Jacksonville’s urban core, according to WalkScore.com. This recognition was based on scoring using four components including bike lanes, hills, destination and road connectivity, and bike commuting mode share. Additionally, Springfield Preservation and Revitalization Council (SPAR) received a Neighbors Get Moving award from the City of Jacksonville in 2018, recognizing it for its role in organizing and promoting wellness activities in the Springfield Historic District community.
Residents and visitors can enjoy a ride on the S-Line Urban Greenway, a nearly three-and-a-half mile paved bike trail through multiple urban core neighborhoods or easily bike to many of Jacksonville’s other locations and destinations.
Bicycle maintenance stations are located behind the SPAR Office at 1321 N. Main St. and in Henry J. Klutho Park at the intersection of Pearl Street and W. 3rd Street. You’ll also find a plethora of bicycle racks at local businesses throughout the neighborhood.
SPAR hosts bike socials around the Urban Core including to Jacksonville Jaguars games, Riverside Arts Market, the Railyard District, and to multiple local breweries and restaurants. Be sure to check out our website and social media pages for meet-ups.
