Columbus: Georgia’s newest Bike Friendly Community

Columbus, the state’s largest city behind Atlanta, has been awarded the Bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Community designation by the League of American Bicyclists.

With this award, Columbus joins eight other official Bike Friendly Communities communities in the state. 

We are thrilled to see Columbus, site of our successful statewide Bike Summit in 2014, receive this well-deserved recognition. Mayor Teresa Tomlinson is a strong supporter of better bicycling and safe, family-friendly streets and trails. Her leadership is well supported by agencies like the River Valley Regional Commission, Midtown Columbus, Inc. and advocacy groups like Bicycle Columbus and Complete Streets Columbus.

With a recently adopted local Complete Streets policy and a compelling vision for improved bicycling, Columbus is determined to be Georgia’s first Silver-level designee.

Congrats on your award, and keep up the great work, Columbus!
