MARQUETTE — The League of American Bicyclists designated Marquette, as a Bicycle Friendly Community at their Silver level.
A ceremony was held today to recognize this honor, as well as those who are engaged in activities that foster and support a bicycle-friendly community in the Marquette area.
David Stensaas, City Planner, City of Marquette said, “This award really recognizes our efforts and I think that people realize that when they see something like this, that this community is committed to a lot of things to make our quality of life as good as possible for the community.“
At the ceremony, the city also introduced plans to create a network of on-street bicycle routes.
This will connect trails on the perimeter of the community to interior parts.
This will give an additional 20 or so miles of designated bike trails.
