Hartford’s a Bike-Friendly Community!

Hartford was just designated a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists, a national bicycling advocacy group. Hartford received the bronze level award, which indicates that the city has taken key steps in becoming bike-friendly.
The designation recognizes Hartford for its current and future bike network plans, its innovative zoning code, its recently passed Complete Streets policy, and its partnerships with local bicycling advocacy groups. The recognition includes key recommendations and statistics from the league that will help the city progress.

Other towns that have received the designation in the past include New Haven, Farmington, Glastonbury, New Britain, South Windsor, and West Hartford, which all received the bronze level, and Simsbury, which received the silver level. Three cheers! Here are some pictures from the celebration, which include Mayor Shari Cantor and dignitaries from other BFC towns!
