Bicycle Friendly Community

In 2010, the City of Lansing was named one of the only eight bicycle friendly communities in Michigan and was presented the Bronze Award by The League of American Bicyclists for the first time. The League of American Bicyclists started their "Bicycle Friendly Community" program to recognize communities that welcome and encourage cyclists in five categories: engineering, encouragement, education, enforcement and lastly, evaluation (planning). 

The City of Lansing has been named a Bicycle Friendly Community Bronze Award again for the years 2020-2024, and has achieved such recognition by both providing safe accommodations for cycling and encouraging people to bike for transportation and recreational purposes.
