Stamford resident Mike Norris has asked candidates running for mayor to take a look at the city from two wheels.
Last month, Norris biked through downtown with Republican Mike Fedele and Democrat William Tong. Thursday, Norris rode with Democrat David Martin.
"The point is one I already agree with, which is we need to make our streets much more pedestrian friendly, much more bicycle friendly," said David Martin.
Norris is a Connecticut Bike and Pedestrian Advisory Board member. He's hoping Stamford's next mayor will invest in bike lanes. Martin says he's all for it.
"You've got to get start and you got to put together a plan to start linking these things together," said Martin. "There are symbols of leadership that the mayor needs to exercise. One of the things I'm looking to do when I become mayor, is I'm going to get a bicycle, and I will bike from the Government Center to the places in the Downtown, South End, West Side where I can bike to it."
"I will do that and I think that's going to be more meaningful to the city planners and the transportation planners."
Martin will face-off with Tong in Tuesday's primary election. Connecticut voters have until Sept. 9 to register to vote.
