Cedar Falls, Iowa
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).
They join the existing regional member of this elite club:
- Lawrence, KS – Bronze
- Shawnee, KS – Bronze
- Arvada, CO – Bronze
- Boulder, CO – Platinum
- Colorado Springs, CO – Silver
- Denver, CO – Bronze
- Durango, CO – Silver
- Fort Collins, CO – Gold
- Longmont, CO – Bronze
- Steamboat Springs, CO – Silver
- South Sioux City, NE – Bronze
This leaves only Arkansas, among Kansas’s neighboring states, without a single bicycle-friendly community. But as recently reported, they have several cities striving for that prize.
Congratulations to all the new Bicycle Friendly Communities!
