The League of American Bicyclists recognized Davis, CA as the first Platinum-level Bicycle Friendly Community.

“We're delighted to recognize Davis as an outstanding city for bicycling,” said Andy Clarke, executive director of the League of American Bicyclists. “For forty years, Davis has had one of the highest levels of bicycle use in the country – currently 17 percent of journeys to work are made by bike. This comes as a direct result of policies and choices they have made over the years.”

“Davis can now look to emulate great international cycling cities such as Copenhagen and Amsterdam,” said Clarke. “The city cannot rest on its laurels. Davis also has a responsibility to help other communities – such as Portland, Ore. and Boulder, Colo. who are close to achieving platinum status – learn from their work.”

Jonathan Maus of BikePortland correctly predicted that other day that Davis would be chosen as the first Platinum Bicycle Friendly Community.
