League of American Bicyclists names City of Myrtle Beach bronze level "Bicycle Friendly Community"

The City of Myrtle Beach has been named a bronze-level “Bicycle Friendly Community” by the League of American Bicyclists. The national group announced Wednesday that 51 communities are being honored as “bicycle friendly” during the fall awards. Myrtle Beach previously had received an “honorable mention,” but moved up to the Bronze Award this year. The city has more than 40 miles of bicycle lanes and paths, along with an active Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee.

“Today we’re proud to honor communities that are taking actions to make biking a safe, accessible option when we all need as much health and happiness as possible,” said Bill Nesper, executive director of the League of American Bicyclists. “A Bicycle Friendly Community award is the culmination of years of work to make biking better by community leaders and local bicycling advocates. The League applauds the 51 new and renewing Bicycle Friendly Communities in this round of awards for being part of the movement for healthier, more sustainable, and connected places.”
