Information about the project,

Link to Online Forum/Bulletin Board,


Just wanted to alert Bike Forums readers about a new project in Southeast Alaska. Sitka, Alaska, a community of 8,500 to 8,800 people on Baranof Island in rainy Southeast Alaska, is trying to get an application together for a Bicycle Friendly Community designation from the League of American Bicyclists. If our application is successful, we'll be the first Alaska community and the nation's smallest town to earn the designation. If you've ever bicycled in Sitka (maybe on tour) or if you have any expertise you can lend as we work on this application, please visit our forum and spread your knowledge. Our main contacts for this project are Matthew Turner of Sitka Advancing Our Community and SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) Health Educator Doug Osborne. If you have expertise in the Bicycle Friendly Community application process, send me a message and I can put you in contact with them.
