KANSAS CITY JOINS COLUMBIA, SPRINGFIELD, ST LOUIS AS BICYCLE FRIENDLY COMMUNITY
Kansas City, MO, 30 April 2011 - Today the League of American
Bicyclists named Kansas City as a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly
Community. The award announcement is part of the kickoff of National
Bike Month, which starts tomorrow.
"This award is the result of years of work by city staff, elected
officials, and advocates," said Brent Hugh, Executive Director of the
Missouri Bicycle and Pedestrian Federation.
"Kansas City has made a complete turnaround--from being rated as one
of the worst cities for bicycling just three years ago to today's
recognition as one of the best."
Three years ago, Missouri had no Bicycle Friendly Communities. Today
over a million Missourians live in a Bicycle Friendly Community.
