Bike Friendly Community
The League of American Bicyclists has designated the city as a "Bicycle Friendly Community and given the city a bronze status ranking. The organization, which is dedicated to promoting bicycling for fun, fitness, and transportation, awards the four-year designation to communities that have made impressive measurable efforts to integrate bicyclists into the community.
The May award ceremony took place on Monday of Bike to Work week following the completion of the Bicentennial Bikeways Plan in 2008. Mayor Michael B. Coleman biked from the OSU gateway to the statehouse for the now annual bike to work event which commemorates the month of May as bike month as well as the start of bike to work week. An award sign was presented to the City of Columbus.
