The League of American Bicyclists has honored Oro Valley for the way it caters to the biking community.
In handing the town its Silver-level distinction, the organization said Oro Valley deserved the honor due to its prevalence of trails, bike lanes, safety campaigns and bike-to-work events.
"Businesses and communities like Oro Valley are leading the way to a healthier and more sustainable future," said Andy Clarke, president of the League of American Bicyclists, in a news release. "While helping boost the economy in their communities, bicycle friendly businesses are also investing in a happier and more productive workforce."
The organization will allow Oro Valley access to tools and technical assistance to further improve its bicycle friendliness.
