Bicycle Friendly Community Presentation

Muscle Powered will be giving a Bicycle Friendly Community presentation to the Regional Transportation Commission this Wednesday, April 14th, at the Carson City Community Center. A Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC) is a designation awarded by the League of American Bicyclists to communities that have proven to posses safe accommodations for cycling, and that encourage people to bike for transportation and recreation.

Muscle Powered will present the BFC application process to the city and explain the benefits of being a BFC. The BFC application will provide a comprehensive picture of our community by asking questions across five categories often referred to as the “Five Es”. These categories are Engineering, Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, and Evaluation & Planning. A community must demonstrate achievements in these areas in order to be considered for an award. Communities with more significant achievements in these areas receive superior awards.

Please attend the meeting if you can. Learn more about the BFC process, and show the city that you support the project!

  1. The Carson City Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) adopted the Action Plan for Bicycle Friendly Community, and we now move on to the Board of Supervisors. More detail to come soon.
