"This award is the result of years of work by city staff, elected officials, and advocates," said Brent Hugh, Executive Director of the Missouri Bicycle and Pedestrian Federation.
"Kansas City has made a complete turnaround--from being rated as one of the worst cities for bicycling just three years ago to today's recognition as one of the best."
Three years ago, Missouri had no Bicycle Friendly Communities. Today over a million Missourians live in a Bicycle Friendly Community.
