The League of American Bicyclists has recognized Reno as a bronze-level bike friendly community.

Criteria for this award consist of the number of arterial streets with bike lanes, total bike network mileage and amount of bicycle public education.

Since 2004, the RTC has installed more than 160 miles of community bike lanes. Truckee Meadows was first Nevada community to receive the designation back in the fall of 2011.

“We are dedicated to giving people transportation choices, and creating safety for the many ways people get around,” RTC Executive Director Lee Gibson said. “This award is a validation of the RTC’s commitment to making safe accommodations for bicyclists creating a more vibrant community for everyone,” he added.
