Why and How to Apply
Communities that are bicycle-friendly are seen as places with a high quality of life. This often translates into business growth and increased tourism. Bicycle-friendly communities are places where people feel safe and comfortable riding their bikes for fun, fitness, and transportation. With more people bicycling, communities experience reduced traffic demands, improved air quality and greater physical fitness. To learn how to make your community more bicycle-friendly, click here.
