In November 2014, Simsbury was recognized as a Silver Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC) by the League of American Bicyclists. The BFC program is revolutionizing the way communities evaluate their quality of life, sustainability and transportation networks, while allowing them to benchmark their progress toward improving their bicycle-friendliness. There are 326 BFCs in all 50 states.
The Silver BFC award recognizes Simsbury’s commitment to improving conditions for bicycling through investment in bicycling promotion, education programs, infrastructure and pro-bicycling policies. To learn more about the BFC program, visit http://bikeleague.org/community.

After a top 5 finish in the National Bike Challenge in 2015, the Simsbury Bike Challenge is back and bigger than ever. New this year, we will be welcoming all adults and teens who live, work, or volunteer in Simsbury to participate. Simsbury businesses can also join the fun by registering their workplace in the challenge and using the challenge as a free wellness and team-building initiative.
