Three more Bicycle Friendly Communities in Michigan

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

The League of American Bicyclists just announced 16 new Bicycle Friendly Community awards, three of which are in Michigan:

  • Lansing
  • Marquette
  • Portage

All three earned the entry-level Bronze status for Engineering, while Lansing also got a Bronze in Education.

There are now six recognized Bicycle Friendly Communities in Michigan. Sadly enough, none are in Macomb, Oakland, or Wayne Counties.

However, it’s expected the city of Detroit will apply within the year given the recent Bikes Belong/REI Bicycle Friendly Community grant. The city of Ferndale had applied years ago but did not receive an award or honorable mention.
