Bicycle Friendly America Program
The Bicycle Friendly America program provides incentives, hands-on assistance, and award recognition for communities, universities and businesses that actively support bicycling, and ranks states annually based on their level of bike-friendliness.
How do you capture and capitalize on the tremendous benefits of biking? The League's Bicycle Friendly America (BFA) program has the answers.
Over the past 10 years, the League has worked with hundreds of engineers, government officials, and bicycle advocates to identify the DNA of bicycle friendliness. Using that expert knowledge, we've determined the specific projects, policies, programs and plans that really make a difference. And the BFA program gives you the specific tools to turn that knowledge into action.
Providing a roadmap to improve conditions for cyclists at the state and local level, the BFA program has expanded and evolved to serve four distinct areas. Click on the links below to learn about each of the programs:
With comprehensive online applications, the program collects data on activities within five broad areas:
But the BFA program is more than an assessment. All applicants get customized feedback on their application and access to technical assistance. If you aren't bicycle friendly yet, we'll help you get there. And once you've made the ranks of a Bicycle Friendly Community, Business or University, the BFA program helps you get to the next level.
