Fernandina Beach Bike Friendly!


Thursday afternoon, under a cloudy sky with light rain, Mr. Tim Bustos, the Executive Director of the Florida Bicycle Association formally presented the League of American Bicyclists' Bronze-level Award to the City of Fernandina Beach.  Mayor Sarah Pelican accepted the award on behalf of the City, and then bicyclists in attendance departed on a 12 mile community bicycle ride.
 
This award recognizes the City of Fernandina Beach as a "Bicycle Friendly Community".  Placards depicting the recognition will be placed at key locations around town.  You can read more about the award and the League of American Bicyclists at  www.bikeleague.org , and read more about the Florida Bicycle Association at www.floridabicycle.org  .
