You might be wondering: Do I qualify to become a Bicycle Friendly America local reviewer? How is my feedback integrated into the award and feedback process? How do I choose the most accurate award level recommendation?
We’ve got you covered!
Bicyclists and advocates, like you, play an important role in the Bicycle Friendly America program. It would be nearly impossible for program staff to visit each community, university or business that has applied for an award, so we rely on YOU for critical local perspective.
Already, more than 350 anonymous local bicycle experts and cyclists of all skill levels are reviewing BFA program applications. Their knowledgeable feedback not only influences the final award decision, but their detailed recommendations of needed improvements are also included in the final report provided to each applicant. Those reports are often used to inform future policy and funding decisions.
