Help Improve Biking in The Villages. FILL OUT THE PLATINUM SURVEY!

 | Published on 3/13/2021

The Bicycle Friendly Advocacy Council (BFAC), which includes all of the community's bicycle clubs, filed the application with the League of American Bicyclists (LAB) that resulted in The Villages being named a Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community, in the top 7% of the 500 rated communities in the US.  BFAC is now in the process of applying for Platinum Level, which only 1% of the rated communities have attained. 


To win Platinum, BFAC has to survey bicycling in The Villages.  The attached survey should take about five minutes to complete. Just click on the button below to start filling it out.

You should also ask your friends and neighbors to fill it out so we can get a large sample. You can send them this same link to the survey to get them started: slbikeclub.org/bfc  


Virtually everyone has completed the survey without problem, but a few have seen an "expired session" error message.  We are working on fixing it.  If you see it, wait 1 hour, restart your device and try again. If you still can't get to the survey, you can call Club Express at 866-457-2582, Monday-Friday, 8:30 AM-7:00 PM for support.


Thanks for helping to make biking better for everyone in The Villages.
