Bicycle Auburn> Bicycle Friendly Community
The City of Auburn is proud to be recognized by the League of American Bicyclists as a Bicycle Friendly Community. The City has been awarded a bronze medal in the Bicycle Friendly Communities Campaign. This campaign is an awards program with the purpose of formally acknowledging municipalities that earnestly support bicycling.
A Bicycle Friendly Community is one that provides safe accommodation for cyclists and at the same time encourages its inhabitants to bike for transportation, as well as enjoyment. The Bicycle Friendly Community Program provides incentives, hands-on assistance, and award recognition for communities that actively support bicycling.
Here's what the League said about our improvements!
There are now over 150 communities around the U.S. recognized as award winners. Yet Auburn remains the ONLY Bicycle Friendly Community in Alabama. Auburn will continue its progress for bicycling improvements to achieve a higher recognition in the future.
