Bethesda Named a Bicycle Friendly Community
 
Bicycle Friendly CommunityBethesda's commitment to bicycling put our community on the national stage when the League of American Bicyclists named us a 'Bicycle Friendly Community'. Baltimore, Frederick and Rockville are also on the list, and Maryland ranks as the League's eighth most bicycle-friendly state in the U.S

"I am so pleased to see Bethesda earn this distinction," says Montgomery County Councilmember Roger Berliner, who represents Bethesda as the District 1 Councilmember. "Making Bethesda more bicycle-friendly is a goal shared by many, but especially by the Bethesda Urban Partnership and Bethesda Transportation Solutions, which helped Bethesda earn this recognition."

The League's Bicycle-Friendly Community program recognized Bethesda at the bronze award level, citing the community's bicycling promotion, education programs, infrastructure and pro-bicycling policies.

Bethesda has seen a significant increase in the number of employees who bike to work regularly, according to Montgomery County's Annual Commuter Survey. It also had the third-highest attendance out of the regional Bike to Work Day celebration this past May.
