League Of American Bicyclists recognizes Olympia and the BCC

The City of Olympia has been given the Silver designation in the "Bicycle Friendly Community" program of the League Of American Bicyclists. The City's most significant recent accomplishment? Growing the Bicycle Commuter Contest from a handful of participants in 1988 to over 1600 in 2009 (the numbers in the LAB article are a little out of date- they must have been using 2008 figures).
