Bicyclist+Mag+CoverIf you’re a member of the League of American Bicyclists, you should have recently received the print edition of “American Bicyclist” the magazine in your mailbox. If you’re not yet a member, the magazine is now online and available to read and share with your friends. The Summer 2019 edition covers topics like:  Advocacy in Action and how your support helps us make biking better for all Americans, and The Bright Future of Bike Clubs: a checklist for leaders.  The League has also shifted its strategic focus to being more inclusive and adding value across our diverse communities. Specifically,

              • Positioning bicycling as something that helps others achieve their health, sustainability, and economic goals.
              • Serving, relating to and adding value to the entire population—across America’s diverse communities.
              • Leading and building partnerships inside and outside bicycling communities.
              • Empowering policymakers with an understanding of the inherent value of Bicycle Friendly Communities.

Love what you see? Join the League and get on their mailings.

Bike Friendly Community Survey BannerThe Town of Normal recently submitted an application to be re-designated as a “Bike Friendly Community” by the League of American Bicyclists.  The League requires the Town to solicit feedback from local bicycle enthusiasts and stakeholders. Please consider taking 10 minutes (yes, it is a little long, but worth it) to contribute your thoughts.

To understand the BFC requirements and benefits, it is helpful to review what the Normal is already doing as well as the BFC award criteria (some excellent ideas here!).

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/app_BFC_FA18

Deadline for submissions is Sept. 20, 2018.

If you have any questions about the BFC process, please contact Mercy Davison, Normal Town Planner, at mdavison@normal.org or (309) 454-9590. Thanks for your support of making bikeable Normal! RB
