Virginia is home to Bike Friendly Communities! (October Update)

Both Arlington County and the City of Falls Church applied for recognition as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists this year. The lengthy application process helps communities capture their progress and identify areas of improvement, while designation can bring needed attention and generate momentum to invest more in bicycle infrastructure. And you have a role to play! Community members are invited to share their thoughts and experiences via survey, now through next Friday, October 20th. BFC awards will be announced in December.
