Bicycle Friendly Community

In May 2016, Fayetteville was awarded a Silver Bicycle Friendly Community Award by the League of American Bicyclists. The award is based on the five E's of a bicycle friendly community including bicycle education, encouragement, evaluation & planning, engineering, and enforcement. Fayetteville joins a leading group of communities, in all 50 states, that are transforming neighborhoods. The City is now among an elite group of 73 communities from across the country awarded with the Silver status.

Fayetteville was first designated as a Bronze BFC in 2010. Through continued improvement in bicycle infrastructure and programming, the City has earned the more prestigious Silver BFC designation. The award recognizes Fayetteville’s commitment to improving conditions for bicycling through investment in bicycling promotion, education programs, infrastructure, and pro-bicycling policies.

“We applaud these communities for making bicycling a safe and convenient option for transportation and recreation,” said Bill Nesper, Vice President of Programs at the League of American Bicyclists. “We are encouraged by the growing number of leaders who see bicycling as a way to build more vibrant, healthy, sustainable, and connected communities and be a part of the solution to many complex challenges faced at both the community and national levels. We look forward to continuing to work with these communities as we move closer to our mission of creating a Bicycle Friendly America for everyone.”
