Bicycle Friendly Community
Coeur d'Alene adopted a Complete Streets Policy in the Spring of 2009
Coeur d'Alene was awarded "Bicycle Friendly Community" status in 2008 by the league of American Bicyclists. This award is a nationally recognized designation that showcases cities that have dedicated themselves to promoting bicycling.
To be designated a bike friendly community the League of American Bicyclists looks at many different criteria: miles of trails and paths, connectivity, education, encouragement, enforcement, engineering, ordinances, the presence of advocacy groups, city policies and much more. When Coeur d'Alene was given a bronze designation, we joined the ranks of 89 other cities across the nation to be considered bike friendly. Currently there are 57 cities with the bronze designation, 20 with silver, 9 with gold and 3 with platinum.
Coeur d'Alene's goal is to obtain platinum status.
Please drive safely around bicycles and pedestrians!
