SITKA, ALASKA One year after launching a community-wide effort to raise awareness and improve safety, Sitka is officially a bike-friendly community.
The Washington DC-based League of American Bicyclists today (5-1-08) awarded Sitka, and seven other communities around the country, a bronze designation for bike friendliness.
The awards increase the number of official bike-friendly communities nationwide to eighty-four, in thirty-one states. Sitka is the first community in Alaska to win the designation.
