LOGAN — The League of American Bicyclists has recognized Logan with a Silver Bicycle Friendly Community award, joining over 400 communities from across the country.
The award recognizes the city’s commitment to improving conditions for bicycling through investment in bicycling promotion, education programs, infrastructure and pro-bicycling policies. The recognition puts Logan alongside Salt Lake City, Moab, Park City and Provo as the top ranked bicycle friendly communities in Utah
“We applaud these communities for making bicycling a safe and convenient option for transportation and recreation,” Bill Nesper, the league’s executive director, said in a statement. “We are encouraged by the growing number of leaders who see bicycling as a way to build more vibrant, healthy, sustainable and connected communities and be a part of the solution to many complex challenges faced at both the community and national levels.”
According to the statement, Logan offers more than 15 miles of trails, 5 miles of bike lanes and a bike park. It is also developing a bike share program.
