Coralville has been recognized by the League of American Bicyclists as a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC)! Coralville joins a cutting-edge group of 404 communities across the United States that are transforming the American landscape.
Coralville City Council will celebrate the award at the December 13 City Council meeting at 6:30 pm.
The BFC program provides a roadmap to building a Bicycle Friendly Community and the application has become a rigorous and an educational tool in itself.
“We applaud these communities for making bicycling a safe and convenient option for transportation and recreation,” said Bill Nesper, Vice President of Programs at the League of American Bicyclists. “We are encouraged by the growing number of leaders who see bicycling as a way to build more vibrant, healthy, sustainable, and connected communities and be a part of the solution to many complex challenges faced at both the community and national levels.”
The Bronze Level BFC award recognizes Coralville’s commitment to improving conditions for bicycling through investment in bicycling promotion, education programs, infrastructure and pro-bicycling policies. The BFC program provides a benchmark for communities to evaluate these conditions and policies, while highlighting areas for improvement.
