The Florida Bicycle Association has selected Cape Coral as Bicycle Friendly Community of the Year.
"Your efforts and achievements for bicyclists is shaping our vision for Florida to be a state where bicycling is safe, respected and encouraged as a means of transportation and recreation" wrote Becky Afonso, Executive Director of the Association in a letter to Cape Coral Bike-Ped.
"Your hard work and dedication to bicycling is to be commended and celebrated", she wrote. The award will be presented later this spring, probably in March (Florida Bike Month) or May (National Bike Month).
BikeWalkLee would like to congratulate Carolyn Conant and the entire group of volunteers of CCBP with this award. It is yet another encouraging sign of the continuing developments to improve conditions in Cape Coral and the entire area for bicycling and walking, as a mode of transportation as well as for recreation and tourism.
