City of Alexandria Earns National Bicycle Recognition
Alexandria Awarded Bronze Level Designation as a 2009 Bicycle Friendly Community
May 8, 2009

More Information: 

• Spin City 2009  
• League of American Bicyclists    

The City of Alexandria was designated as a Bronze level 2009 Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC) by the League of American Bicyclists. The League recognized the City of Alexandria for its efforts to welcome bicyclists and make bicycling safer and more enjoyable.  Since 2006, the City of Alexandria and its community partners have focused on bicycling-related engineering, education, encouragement, and enforcement.  The BFC accreditation-style program acknowledges municipalities that provide safe accommodations for cycling and encourage residents to ride for transportation and recreation.

The League of American Bicyclists designates awards at four levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. This year, the League recognizes 13 new Bicycle Friendly Communities and three Bicycle Friendly Community renewals. The application process to become a BFC is rigorous; currently only 108 of the 274 applicants have a BFC four-year designation.  The renewal process and four levels of recognition provide a clear incentive for communities to continuously improve. 
Other local municipal award recipients include Arlington County, Virginia, which received a Silver level designation, and Washington, D.C., which received a Bronze level designation.
