The League of American Bicyclists represents bicyclists in the movement to create safer roads, stronger communities, and a Bicycle Friendly America. The League’s Bicycle Friendly America (BFA) program provides a roadmap, hands-on assistance and recognition for states, communities, universities and businesses. The BFA program is a tool for states, communities, business and universities to make bicycling a real transportation and recreation option for all people. Read more about the League on their website

After review of Kent’s Spring 2020 Bicycle Friendly Community application and consultation with local cyclists, the League of American Bicyclists has determined that Kent should be recognized with an Honorable Mention!

Kent is proud of this accomplishment and we are striving to make improvements to earn an even higher award in the future.

The Bicycle Friendly Community award process considers a range of elements, including a community’s efforts to educate children and adults about how to bike, plan and build bike infrastructure, evaluate success towards getting more people on bikes, and encourage road safety all through the lens of equity.
