On September 10th, city bike manufacturer Linus Bike responds to an article published on press-citizen.com regarding the numerous bike themed improvements in the Bicycle Friendly Community of Iowa City.
According to the article, Iowa City earned a bronze level award after being named a Bicycle Friendly Community in 2009. The article reports that after receiving the award, the community continued improving the city’s bike advocacy. In addition to improvements to the city’s infrastructure, press-citizen.com states, “The city also received a grant to purchase more than 150 bike route signs for streets and trails, which are scheduled to be installed this fall, and partnered with the police department and local bike shops to allow those found riding at night without a light to purchase a light in lieu of paying a fine.”
Press-citizen.com adds, the community has proposed an installation of bicycle parking in different parts of Iowa City. Additionally, the city hopes to install bike route signs that will connect downtown to various neighborhoods. According to Jason Latty, sales manager for the environmentally friendly city bike manufacturer Linus Bike, “Nowadays, more people are realizing that bicycles can be used for far more than recreation. By committing to cycling as an environmentally friendly form of transportation, the people of Iowa City are improving their health and their community.
