Four crews of volunteers worked to make city streets safer for bicyclists.

They painted bicycle directional signs from the railroad tracks at the depot downtown, with the work leading north along Holden Street, across Highway 50 and then to Highway 13 near Pizza Hut, Applebee's and Buffalo Wild Wings.

From Whiteman Air Force Base, a volunteer crew of four worked near the railroad tracks. They placed a template of a bicyclist on the street, and a template with two arrows resembling corporal stripes, and with cans of white spray paint created the directional signs. The signs show bicyclists the way north and south from the University of Central Missouri campus to the north side of Warrensburg. They also alert motorists that bicyclists share the street.
