Township designated as Bicycle Friendly Community
THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS – The League of American Bicyclists recently recognized The Woodlands Township with the designation of Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC), an award presented to communities with remarkable commitments to bicycling.
The Township, along with 10 other communities nationwide, was awarded the Bronze level designation as a first-time BFC. Communities may renew their designations every four years, with the opportunity to be re-evaluated and move up to higher designations.
“We are proud and honored to receive this important award,” said Township Director of Parks and Recreation Chris Nunes. “This award is a result of systematic planning and the development of programs that recognizes the importance of the bicycle to The Woodlands quality of life.”
The BFC award recognizes a community’s commitment to improving conditions for bicycling through investment in bicycling promotion, education programs, infrastructure and pro-bicycling policies. To date, the League of American Bicyclists has received 490 applications and designated 190 Bicycle Friendly Communities in 46 states.
