Carbondale named Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community

Carbondale has been recognized by the League of American Bicyclists as a Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community, joining 325 other U.S. communities that earned the honor.

“Visionary community leaders are recognizing the real-time and long-term impact that a culture of bicycling can create,” said Andy Clarke, President of the League of American Bicyclists. “We applaud the Town of Carbondale for investing in a more sustainable future for their town and a healthier future for their residents who live there.”

The Bicycle Friendly Community program provides a road map to building a friendly biking environment within the community, and the application award process has become a rigorous and an educational tool in itself.

Carbondale, which previously held a Bronze Level certification, will retain its Gold status for four years. With ongoing effort from the Carbondale Bicycle, Pedestrian & Trails Commission — which this summer unveiled the Community Bike Park — and general local passion for a bicycle friendly Carbondale for everyone, the town hopes to eventually upgrade its status to Platinum or Diamond.
