PLATINUM Bicycle Friendly Community, Awarded May 2013

"A bicycle culture is key in defining the fabric of what makes Fort Collins a great place to live, work and play. We know it is a primary means of transportation for many, a major form of recreation for most, and a significant factor in attracting new businesses and new residents," stated Mayor Weitkunat. "Our City works alongside many community organizations to build a seamless bikeway network and ensure a safe cycling community. We are proud to accept this Platinum designation. Bicycling is a community value and a way of life in Fort Collins."

On February 26, 2013, FC Bikes proudly submitted an application to the League of American Bicyclists to be considered for their Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC) Program. The BFC Program offers national recognition for communities that actively support bicycling. A Bicycle Friendly Community welcomes cyclists by providing safe accommodation for cycling and encourages people to bike for transportation and recreation. Check out the video we produced to supplement our application.
