Is Billings gold-worthy? Please take the League of American Bicyclists Survey by March 22

Posted · Add Comment

The City of Billings has applied again with the League of American Bicyclists to be a bicycle-friendly community. We were awarded BRONZE status a number of years ago, and are trying to make it to GOLD.

The LAB would like your input on Billings’ bike-friendliness. Criteria they use in deciding our bicycle friendly status include:

  1. Engineering (bike access to public transportation, total bicycle network mileage to total road network mileage, arterial streets with bike lanes)
  2. Education (public education and outreach, percent of primary and secondary schools offering bicycling education and annual offering of adult bicycling skills classes)
  3. Enforcement (law enforcement/bicycling liaison, bicycle-friendly laws/ordinances in place)

Please take their survey to help them determine where Billings should be, and your honesty is encouraged! When you take the survey  you’ll probably see there’s a lot of work yet to do!
