The League of American Bicyclists announced the selection of several new Bicycle Friendly Communities, including two cities receiving their inaugural award at the Gold Level.

Gold cities are Madison, WI and San Francisco, CA.
Bellingham, WA received the Silver designation.
Receiving Bronze for the first time are Flagstaff, AZ; Milwaukee, WI; Sunnyvale, CA and South Sioux City, NE.

Eight communities also successfully renewed their Bicycle Friendly Community designations, including my old residence of Longmont, Colorado. We were working for a Silver designation but didn't quite make it; perhaps next time!

“We salute these communities for their tremendous commitment to improving conditions for bicyclists,” said Andy Clarke, executive director of the League of American Bicyclists. “They are making the streets safer for bicycling, educating bicyclists and motorists to share the road, promoting a wide range of bicycling activities and even stepping up the enforcement of traffic laws to protect bicyclists.”
