Chattanooga, TN (WDEF) – The League of American Bicyclists renewed the City of Chattanooga’s Outdoor Chattanooga division as a Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Business.  That means it’s recognized for its dedication to encouraging cycling and offering support to people riding bicycles for recreation and transportation.
        That gets a "10" on the Amy-O-Meter!
        Here are some of the reasons for the designation:
        -Outdoor Chattanooga houses the busiest station in the Bike Chattanooga bicycle transit system.
        -The department contributes to safer streets through regularly scheduled bicycle safety classes, educational, guided rides and children’s programming.
        -The department also serves as the bicycle education partner for the Chattanooga Department of Transportation’s driver education program and the Chattanooga Police Department’s Safe Bicycling Initiative.
        -Outdoor Chattanooga promotes bicycling as a partner to economic drivers such as IRONMAN Chattanooga and the Volkswagen USA Cycling Professional Road and Time Trial National Championships, as well as providing logistical support to community advocacy events such as National Bike to Work Day, Bike to Riverbend and Bike to the Ballpark.
        What better way is there to celebrate Earth Day than to congratulate one of Chattanooga’s "green" businesses?
