Phoenix Named a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclistshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/street-transportation/1333Street Transportation6/10/2020 11:18:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1333/Newsroom_Streets_017.jpgPhoenix Named a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists<div class="ExternalClass793ECA8465AF4DB3B090B72B64A74078"><html> <p>Today, the League of American Bicyclists announced that Phoenix once again earned the Bronze-level award as a Bicycle Friendly Community for its commitment to making the city a better, safer place to bicycle. Phoenix is the fifth largest U.S. city and joins 482 communities across the country in the pursuit of safer streets and better bicycling for everyone. The award recognizes Phoenix for its commitment to improving transportation corridors and recreational opportunities that can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities.</p><p><br>“We are committed to making bicycling easier and safer for our residents,” said Mayor Kate Gallego. “Phoenix currently has 1,062 bike lane miles with that number continuously growing. Multi-modal transportation, in which bicycles play an important part, is the key to a healthier and more equitable future.”</p><p><br>“With support from the Mayor and City Council, the Street Transportation Department created the Office of Pedestrian Safety and the Active Transportation Program as proof of a lasting commitment to improving safety and active transportation options citywide,” said Kini Knudson, Phoenix Street Transportation Director. </p><p><br>Since 2002, the League of American Bicyclists Bicycle Friendly America program has accepted more than 1,800 applications for awards and there are currently nearly 500 Bicycle Friendly Communities in the 50 states and the District of Columbia.  </p><p><br>“Phoenix made the cut and although we are happy with the Bronze award, we will continue to work with the community to make wise investments in bicycle infrastructure so we can improve our designation in the next evaluation,” Knudson said.</p><p><br>“Whether people are commuting to work, exploring trails or bicycling for fun and fitness, Phoenix has something for everyone,” said Councilwoman Thelda Williams, who chairs the Transportation, Infrastructure and Innovation Subcommittee. “With the Accelerated Pavement Maintenance Program, each paving project is a blank slate to reimagine how the road is used. Street Transportation is evaluating each paving project to see where new bike lanes can be added.”</p><p><br>“Across the country, we have seen so many Americans biking during the pandemic. It’s critical that communities like Phoenix are taking steps to make biking a safe, accessible option for people,” said Bill Nesper, executive director of the League of American Bicyclists.</p><p><br>The League of American Bicyclists’ Bicycle Friendly America program sets standards for how communities build and mark progress toward safer and better bicycling options. The Bronze level award recognizes Phoenix’s commitment to improving conditions for all people who bike through investments in bicycle infrastructure, bicycle education, adult and youth bicycle safety programs, events like Bike to Work Day, public input and more. </p><p><br>To learn more about the BFC program, visit <a target="_blank" href="https://bikeleague.org/community">bikeleague.org/community</a>.</p><p><br>Learn more about the Street Transportation Department at <a target="_blank" href="/streets/">phoenix.gov/streets</a> and follow the department on Twitter <a target="_blank" href="https://twitter.com/StreetsPHX">@StreetsPHX</a>.</p><p style="text-align:center;">###</p> <p><strong>About the League of American Bicyclists</strong><br>The League of American Bicyclists leads the national movement to create a Bicycle Friendly America for everyone.
