BALTIMORE IS A BICYCLE FRIENDLY COMMUNITY


September 14th, 2010 | Categories: People | Post Comment

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!
