The City of Cedar Falls has earned the Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Community Award by the League of American Bicyclists. The community has taken great strides towards improving the bicycle environment. The effort has paid off becoming Iowa's first community earn the award. The Bicycle Friendly Communities Campaign is an awards program that recognizes municipalities that actively support bicycling. A Bicycle-Friendly Community provides safe accommodation for cycling and encourages its residents to bike for transportation and recreation. A committee reviews and scores the application and consults with local cyclists in your community. An award of platinum, gold, silver or bronze status is designated for four years. Cedar Falls has completed a bicycle plan during the past year that includes 53 miles of on-street bicycle routes, lanes, and way finding markings. The community has developed a world-class trail system and is now working to make the education and encouragement efforts better. Congratulation to Cedar Falls!
