BikeProvo.org published an update yesterday regarding efforts to get Provo on the League of American Cyclists’ list of cities that are good for bike riding. According to the post, the effort began more than a year ago and included a lot of work from several of Provo’s bike activists and gurus. All that’s left now is the league’s answer.
The post explains that landing on the list will have a variety of “less-tangible” benefits including momentum, guidance, attention and more recognition. There will be more immediately visible benefits as well:
All that hard work isn’t for nothing. Becoming a bike-friendly city could be a big deal for Provo. Yes, we would be listed on League of American Cyclist publications and would get to put up two Bike-Friendly Community signs.
For all of these reasons, the work being done by the Provo Bicycle Committee is a major boon for the city.
