June 10, 2015 – The League of American Bicyclists announced the latest round of Bike Friendly City (BFC) designations. Salt Lake City, Utah renewed their Silver Level award, first obtained in 2011.
Regarding Salt Lake’s bike philosophy, Mayor Ralph Becker said, “Salt Lake City’s commitment to bicycling is an integral strategy to improving our city’s livability, economy, sustainability, and health. With our GREENbike sharing system now in its third year of operations, and ever increasing miles of bike lanes and urban trails, the City is creating a network connecting downtown to our neighborhoods and supporting our local businesses.”
Boise, Idaho reached Silver. This year was the first time they applied. Ada County, Idaho, in which Boise sits, is also a Silver level community.
