The League of American Bicyclists recognized Fort Worth with a bronze-level Bicycle-Friendly Community award. Fort Worth was part of the largest application round in the program’s 13-year history. In total, 140 communities applied for recognition, a 62 percent increase from the previous largest round of applicants.

With the announcement of 26 new and 77 renewing Bicycle-Friendly Communities, Fort Worth joins communities in all 50 states that are transforming neighborhoods. There are now 404 communities recognized for their efforts to make biking better with a Bicycle-Friendly Community award.

The bronze Bicycle-Friendly Community award recognizes Fort Worth’s commitment to improving conditions for bicycling through investment in bicycling promotion, education programs, infrastructure and pro-bicycling policies. The program provides a benchmark for communities to evaluate these conditions and policies while highlighting areas for improvement.
