The League of American Bicyclists has recognized the City of Greensboro for its efforts to make bicycling better for all residents. Greensboro has been awarded the designation of a bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Community three times: in 2009, 2013, and most recently in 2017. The award designation lasts for four years and must be renewed through a reapplication process. Greensboro is one out of only twelve communities in North Carolina to receive this award.
The Bicycle Friendly Community program "provides a roadmap to improving conditions for bicycling guidance to help make... a better, bikeable community a reality." The designation is awarded to those communities that have made outstanding efforts to make bicycling easier, safer, and an ideal mode of choice for residents and visitors alike. Greensboro's bicycle infrastructure, education programs, planning efforts, and strong bicycle culture have all contributed to earning this award.
