The League of American Bicyclists announced the latest round of newly designated Bicycle Friendly Communities, and Georgia got some great news.
Congratulations to Peachtree City, the state’s newest bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Community!
Peachtree City features over 90 miles of paved multi-use paths that are open to golf carts, pedestrians, and bicyclists. The city is also creating bike-friendly streets and roads to accommodate daily bike travel and recreational cycling. Peachtree City joins seven other communities in GA with the BFC designation.
We want to recognize the city of Alpharetta as well for its Honorable Mention. Keep up the great work, Bike Alpharetta!
Our neighbors in Chattanooga also deserve a high-five. The city moved up from bronze to silver, one of only a handful of cities in the southeast to have earned that designation. So far, all the BFC’s in Georgia are bronze level. Who will emerge as our first silver-level city?
