In 2017, the City was awarded the Bronze Bicycle Friendly Award from The League of American Bicyclists. Community Planning & Economic Development, Parks and Recreation, and Public Services are working together, along with Kalamazoo County Parks, local bicycle advocacy groups, and local anchor institutions, to provide a comprehensive bicycle network. With City partners and local businesses, the goal is to achieve a gold certificate by 2020.
