The League of American Bicyclists, in the January/February 2011 issue of American Bicyclist, specifically recognized Gilbert, AZ, for implementing a transportation policy requiring bicycle lanes on ALL arterial streets. The LAB also recognized Pima County for its Diversion/education program for ticketed bicyclists (including a
reference to our very own board member, Sheila Foraker, who is the Pima County Bike Ambassador Project Manager).
In addition, the January/February issue listed Arizona as 9th in the ranking of bicycle friendly states and listed the following as our Bicycle Friendly Communities:
  • Gold - Tucson, and East Pima Region
  • Silver - Flagstaff, Scottsdale and Tempe
  • Bronze - Chandler, Gilbert and Mesa
