ProWalk ProBike is a conference for bicycle & pedestrian planners, engineers, advocates where we trade ideas & stories for making America better through active transportation. At today’s lunch session, it was announced that Baltimore was named a BRONZE LEVEL BICYCLE FRIENDLY COMMUNITY by the League of American Bicyclists!
After two Honorable Mention awards, Baltimore joins the ranks of Philadelphia, Washington DC & Charlotte as a bronze level bike friendly community. To put it in perspective, Portland is plantinum, San Francisco & Seattle are gold, and Chicago & Arlington, VA are silver.
We still have a long way to go, but as a community of cyclists, we can become even more bike friendly! Thanks to everyone who helped bring this award to B’more!
