Earlier this month, The League of American Bicyclists honored the efforts of Warsaw and Winona Lake to build better places for people to bike with a Bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC) award. Warsaw and Winona lake joins 482 communities across the country in the movement for safer streets and better bicycling for everyone. The award recognizes Warsaw and Winona Lake for its commitment to creating transportation and recreational resources that benefit its residents of all ages and abilities while encouraging healthier and more sustainable transportation choices.
“Across the country, we have seen so many Americans biking during the pandemic. It’s critical that there are communities like Warsaw and Winona Lake taking the steps to make biking a safe, accessible option for people, whether they are commuting to essential jobs, or looking for recreational options outside their homes,” said Bill Nesper, executive director of the League of American Bicyclists. “This award is the culmination of years of work put in by Warsaw and Winona Lake and its citizen advocates for better biking.” The Bronze BFC award recognized Warsaw and Winona Lake’s commitment to improving conditions for all
people who bike through investments in bike education programs, regular bike events that promote and encourage people to choose biking, pro-bike policies, and bike infrastructure.
