Scottsdale Praised as a Bicycle-Friendly City

By Breyer Law Offices on October 31, 2011

The Arizona Republic reports that Scottsdale has been named a gold-level bicycle-friendly community by The League of American Bicyclists (LAB). This honor was given to only 14 communities in the country. Reed Kempton, a transportation planner with the city of Scottsdale, says that the city tries to provide a variety of facilities for bicyclists. Scottsdale received this award for doing several things:

  • The city has more bike facilities per resident than the other 90 largest cities in the United States.
  • Nearly 75 percent of all locations in Scottsdale are within a half mile of a shred-use bike path.
  • Since the city last applied for the designation in 2007, it has added 62 miles of bike routes, 26 miles of bike lanes, 14 enhanced crossings, and 40 miles of paths.

The league also considered the number of bike racks in the city and the amount of bicycle outreach to kids and adults when awarding Scottsdale this honor. One thing that helps Scottsdale stay bike-friendly is its “complete street” policy. Any time a street is reconstructed, workers plan for new bike lines and wider sidewalks for pedestrians.

Although Scottsdale is one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the country, other Arizona cities are not as safe. Phoenix, for example, has a number of dangerous intersections that put bicycle riders at risk of serious collisions.

Even when bicyclists educate themselves about road safety, they cannot control the actions of the motorists they share the roads with.
