In Memoriam – Bruce Dillon

Help Venice Once Again Achieve the
“Bicycle Friendly City” Designation

Each year The League of American Bicyclists awards cities it recognizes as bicycle friendly. Last year the city of Venice was awarded the Silver designation. Award status lasts for one year and Venice has again submitted its application for next year.

As part of the review process, input from local bicyclists and bike advocates about their experiences and perceptions of biking conditions in Venice are obtained through the survey linked below. The survey responses are used both to inform the League’s award decision, as well as to provide (anonymous) local feedback to the applicant community about how they can improve conditions for bicyclists.

You can help Venice win this award by expressing your thoughts in the survey. The last day to take the survey is November 15. Thank you and good luck Venice! Click here to take the survey.
