Congratulations to the City of Duluth for being recognized as community that has embraced the environmental, financial and quality of life benefits that come with bicycle riding.  A growing number of cities across the country are using this mode of transportation as a solution to many challenges. Thanks to a submission by Healthy Duluth, The League of American Bicyclists announced that Duluth has been named a Bronze BFC.

One of the most visual reminders of Duluth becoming a bicycle friendly city is the bike racks on our DTA buses.  This gives cyclists the opportunity to save money on gas and parking while getting in exercise that many of us don’t have time for in our day.

“Duluth is playing a critical part in creating a truly Bicycle Friendly America,” said Andy Clarke, President of the League of American Bicyclists. “We know Duluth’s investment in bicycling will be returned many times over in the health, environmental, and quality of life benefits of a thriving community.”

Mayor of Duluth, Don Ness has taken a strong stance on bicycling saying that “Duluth is ranked the #3 trail city in North America and he is hoping we build on that status.  There has been significant investments made to complete streets, paved trails, and the building of a 100-mile mountain biking system called The Duluth Traverse.”  There is a new generation of Duluthians who want active transportation options.

The Bicycle Friendly Community, Bicycle Friendly State, Bicycle Friendly Business and Bicycle Friendly University programs are generously supported by program partner Trek Bicycle.
