The League of American Bicyclists recently named Stevens Point as a Bronze level Bicycle Friendly Community, marking the city’s first appearance on the list.
This means some great things for biking in the community. Not only was Stevens Point recognized as a bicycle-friendly community, but this also makes the city a member of the League’s Bicycle Friendly America program, which strives to continuously improve and create better bike-friendly possibilities for their members.
The Bicycle Friendly America program seeks to meet the following goals, among others:
- Sets standards for what constitutes a real bicycling culture and environment
- Inspires action, involvement and coordination among people that want to improve conditions for bicyclists
- Rewards persistence as people respond to feedback, make changes and come back again and again to get recognition
- Raises expectations as to what really is expected and involved in making a great place for bicycling
