Lee’s Summit has once again been named a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC) by the League of American Bicyclists. The League of American Bicyclists welcomed 26 new and 77 renewing BFCs in what was the largest application round in the program’s history.

Communities, businesses and universities are assessed for the bicycle friendly program through a voluntary application process. Applications are reviewed by both a panel of national bicycle experts and local reviewers, and a report card is produced with recommendations on how to improve conditions for bicycling. Lee’s Summit’s report card can be found here. Levels are awarded based on excellence in five categories - engineering, education, encouragement, enforcement, and evaluation and planning - with Bronze Level communities generally exhibiting excellence in one or two categories. In the Kansas City metropolitan area, Kansas City, Mo., and Shawnee, Kan., join Lee’s Summit at the Bronze Level.

"I encourage all ages to exercise to improve their well-being. Bicycling is one more way to support that effort,” said City of Lee’s Summit Mayor Randy Rhoads. “This designation is a statement of our value as a community as well as our continued commitment to the bicycle friendliness of the City. Congratulations to those who helped us maintain this designation, such as the Livable Streets Advisory Board, City staff and the Lee’s Summit City Council,” said Mayor Rhoads.  

The Bicycle Friendly Community designation was a goal of the citizen-led Strategic Plan Lee’s Summit 360: Charting Tomorrow and the Livable Streets Advisory Board. Lee’s Summit is also a Silver Level Walk Friendly Community, designated by the National Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center. The only other community in either Kansas or Missouri to have both the Walk Friendly and Bicycle Friendly designations is Springfield, Mo.

The League of American Bicyclist’s mission is to lead the movement to create a Bicycle Friendly America for everyone. For more information, visit BikeLeague.org.
