Bike-Friendly Bloomington Recognized by the League of American Bicyclists

Posted on April 19, 2011



Although the Little 500 Races are over, the City of Bloomington is still filled with cycling excitement.

Last week, the League of American Bicyclists, a non-profit organization promoting a bicycle-friendly nation, awarded the city and several local institutions for making efforts to create a bike-friendly community.

The five local entities recognized were the City of Bloomington, Indiana University, City Hall, Bloomingfoods, and the Bloomington Bicycle Club.

IU was awarded the bronze “Bicycle Friendly University” plaque. Office of Sustainability director Bill Brown represented the University at the ceremony. Some if his work includes incorporating a bicycle-friendly plan into his transportation platform.

The Office of Sustainability offers internships for developing a bike and pedestrian infrastructure report to identify deficiencies in the cycling and pedestrian infrastructure on campus, according to the office’s website.

Bicycle enthusiasts can learn how to get involved in biking on campus and around the city with the Office of Sustainability’s interactive map.
