League of American Bicyclists Names Alexandria a Silver Level Bicycle Friendly Community 

The City of Alexandria has been named a Silver level Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC) by the League of American Bicyclists, recognizing Alexandria’s commitment to improving conditions for bicycling through investment in education and safety programs, bicycling promotion, and infrastructure.  
Awarded the bronze level in 2008, this new achievement reflects the City’s launch of the Capital Bikeshare program, and the significant growth of on-street bike lanes, shared lanes, bicycle and pedestrian trails, and the adoption of a Complete Streets policy, which ensures accommodations for multiple users, including bicyclists.   

The award echoes Alexandria’s commitment to providing a multimodal transportation network, with bicycling as a key component.  The BFC application is a rigorous nationwide process with more than 500 community applicants.  Five levels of the award – diamond, platinum, gold, silver and bronze – provide a clear incentive to continuously improve a City’s bicycle programs.
