Lafayette Rocks! See below notice from the League of American Bicyclists that Lafayette is close to national recognition as a Bicycle Friendly Community. Yeehaw!:From: Nicole Wynands Subject: Bicycle Friendly Community Application Result
After careful review of your Bicycle Friendly Community application and consultation with local cyclists, the League of American Bicyclists has determined that Lafayette and Lafayette Parish should be recognized with an Honorable Mention. You should be proud of this accomplishment, since a few additional improvements could earn a Bicycle Friendly Community award in the future.
The League will promote your Honorable Mention status on our website for one year. We will gladly review an updated application in the future, so we urge you to make as many improvements as possible.
You will receive a detailed feedback report by the end of July which will outline important measures Lafayette and Lafayette Parish should take to become more bicycle-friendly. We are looking forward to helping you achieve a Bicycle Friendly Community status so please let us know if we can assist.
Once again, accept our congratulations on your efforts to create a Bicycle Friendly Community.
