Salida recognized by the League of American Bicyclists as a “Bicycle Friendly Community”
The City of Salida and Salida Recreation are proud to announce that our community has been chosen as an official Bicycle Friendly Community. This designation comes from the League of American Bicyclists and is decided following a lengthy application process.
The Silver Level designation will be presented at the City Council meeting Tuesday, Oct. 15. An award ceremony will be scheduled later this month to celebrate the award with the Salida community.
The Bicycle Friendly Community program helps communities like Salida evaluate their quality of life and sustainability and transportation needs, while allowing us to benchmark our progress toward improving our bicycle-friendliness.
The program has accepted nearly 600 applications for designation since 2002. Currently, there are 291 Bicycle Friendly Communities in the U.S.
Congratulations to the Salida High School Mountain Bike team, for placing 2nd at the 2011 State Championships, and to Coach Fred Maxwell, who received “Coach of the Year”. Fred also received Colorado High School Coach of the year from the National Interscholastic Cycling Association. Congrats to all athletes and coaches for a winning season!
