Glenwood Springs Named A Bicycle Friendly Community

Glenwood Springs—Nearly two dozen communities in Colorado are considered bicycle friendly by the League of American Bicyclists.  Glenwood Springs is one of them.  The coveted designation places Glenwood Springs at the Silver Level for the next four years and among a leading group of communities in the United States that are doing more for alternate forms of transportation.  Glenwood Springs Mayor Mike Gamba says, “We have worked hard to implement bicycle friendly roadways for residents and tourists to safely use and are excited to be officially recognized as a bicycle friendly community.”  Some of the recently completed projects in Glenwood Springs that led to the national recognition include the Red Mountain Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge, the West Midland Trail, new bike lanes on Pitkin Avenue and the new Grandstaff Trail.  Glenwood’s Silver Level status is good until 2022 at which time the city can apply for renewal.
