[ARCHIVED] Bicycle Friendly Community

For a second time, Concord has been designated as a Bicycle Friendly Community

at the Bronze level by the League of American Bicyclists. Concord first
received the four-year designation in 2010. The current designation is good

through 2019. To be considered for this designation, the Bicycle Subcommittee
of the City’s Transportation Policy Advisory Committee (TPAC) completed a

100+ question application, which was then reviewed by national experts, as well
as by members of the local bicycling community. As part of the review, Bill

Nesper, Vice President of Programs for the League, visited Concord and participated
in a review of the City by bicycle with 11 other participants, including representatives

from the State, the Regional Planning Commission, TPAC, the Central
NH Bicycling Coalition, the Bike Walk Alliance of NH, and staff of the

City’s Planning and Engineering Divisions. After the review, Mr. Nesper commended
the City on its efforts and noted that past efforts included in the Comprehensive

Transportation Policy (Complete Streets) and the Bicycle Master
Plan were evident in projects like Main Street, Route 3 Corridor, and the Loudon

Road lane conversion.
