Grand Rapids Recieves League of American Bicyclists Honors
The city of Grand Rapids, Michigan recently received a bronze designation from the League of American Bicyclists as a bicycle friendly community on the rise.
League officials said they were impressed by the 255 miles of shared-use bicycle paths found in Kent and eastern Ottawa counties during a visit earlier this year. They also liked the 207 miles of Kent County roads with four-foot paved shoulders to accommodate bicyclists.
“Grand Rapids is a standout community in Michigan for its initiative and progress to become more bicycle friendly,” said League President Andy Clarke.
