Bicycle Friendly America: How Bike Friendly Is Your Town?


The League of American Bicyclists. You may remember them as the group that organizes the National Bike Challenge. (And, yes, I am still at it. I will post another update at the end of this month.) The league has many tire irons in their fire.

One of those is the Bicycle Friendly America program. In their words:

The League’s Bicycle Friendly America℠ program provides a roadmap, hands-on assistance and recognition for states, communities, universities and businesses. The BFA program is a tool for states, communities, business and universities to make bicycling a real transportation and recreation option for all people.

I was reading over a BFA brochure today and found a community scorecard. Sure, this little survey is not as much fun as learning which Star Wars character you would be or how compatible you are with different types of pets OMG - not Jar Jar Binks and a teacup chihuahua! How can this be?!!! But, I thought you might lke seeing where your town fits in.


The entire brochure can be found here:

May your town and your bicyclists be mutually friendly!
