[ARCHIVED] Midland Earns Recertification as Bronze Bicycle Friendly Community

November 18, 2016 – The League of American Bicyclists has announced that Midland has received recertification as a Bronze level Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC). The BFC program is a tool for communities to make bicycling a real transportation and recreation option for all people. Recertification is valid for four years.

The City, which received its first Bronze certification in 2010, was evaluated for bike friendliness in a variety of categories, including the number of riders, encouragement of a bicycling culture, education for bicyclists and motorists, and physical infrastructure. Midland offers a variety of bicycling amenities, including on-street bike lanes, designated on-street bicycle routes throughout the city, and numerous multi-use paths through the city and surrounding area totaling nearly 40 linear miles.

Statewide, Michigan ranks 18th in the nation for “bicycle friendliness” and is home to 10 BFCs, 5 bicycle friendly universities, and 21 bicycle friendly businesses. Midland is one of 404 Bicycle Friendly Communities located in all 50 states.
