Anyone who enjoys riding a bike should participate, at least a little, in creating more and better places to ride. One of the wonderful things about living in America is the impact that an individual can have on the decisions that government makes about roads, bike paths and facilities. You can exercise the impact that you have to the benefit of all the cyclists in our community.
Fort Collins, with its well integrated on and off-street bicycle network, has a long history of deep and abiding commitment to bicycling. The League of American Bicyclists has named Fort Collins, Colorado a Bicycle-Friendly Community, following a detailed audit of the city’s efforts to provide safe accommodation and facilities for bicyclists and to encourage residents to bike for transportation and recreation. Through policy and design, Fort Collins has focused on increasing opportunities for physical activity and is a model in America’s efforts to reduce obesity.
