The city of Sturgeon Bay kicked off Bike to School and Bike to Work celebrations early by being named a bronze level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists. Since its last recognition as a Bicycle Friendly Community, Egg Harbor Road has added bicycle lanes and sidewalk while future plans for a reconstructed Duluth Avenue will have similar paths for cyclists. City planner Ryan Kernosky says it is a tremendous honor for the city to receive the designation.
Kernosky says one likely area of improvement will be adding more education components to help keep bicycling safe for everyone. The League of American Bicyclists will release its final report for the city with areas of celebration and improvement listed in the coming weeks.
