Three Area Communities Earn Bicycle-Friendly Designation

The League of American Bicyclists have announced their latest Bicycle Friendly Communities, and three cities in the region have earned a coveted place on this prestigious list:

Cedar Falls, Iowa

Columbia, Missouri

Tulsa, Oklahoma

Each of these cities have become the first communities in their states to earn the “Bicycle Friendly Community” designation.

The Bicycle Friendly Communities program recognize communities for their efforts in promoting bicycling, and awards designations at four levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum (with Platinum being the most bicycle-friendly).

Congratulations to all the new Bicycle Friendly Communities!
