Bicycle Friendly Application

According to a recent Newport Patch article:

The Newport City Council passed a resolution Wednesday night commending Bike Newport for its initiatives and achievements, and inviting the organization to assist the city in making Newport more bikeable.

The resolution requested Bike Newport to assist in educating motorists and cyclists on how to share the road, and helping Newport achieve recognition as a bicycle friendly community.

Rhode Island is one of only two states in the country without a certified “Bicycle Friendly Community,” defined by the League of American Bicyclists, as a community that “welcomes cyclists by providing safe accommodation for cycling and encouraging people to bike for transportation and recreation.”

It would be awesome to add a city in Rhode Island to this list.
