The Tucson/Eastern Pima County Region is designated a Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists (LAB). The LAB is one of the largest and most respected bicycle advocacy organizations in the country.
The award reflects the exceptional level of cooperation among the nine regional jurisdictions, and acknowledges the depth and breadth of programs, policies, facilities and outreach that make the Tucson-Pima Eastern Region the premier bicycle friendly region in the country.
While we are proud of the gold designation, the region strives for platinum, the highest rating given. PAG coordinates the Platinum Challenge Task Force, a group of citizens, jurisdiction staff, law enforcement and interest group representatives that work together to identify improvements needed in order to become a platinum-level community, encourage the region to implement them and develop the regional application to submit to the League of American Bicyclists.
