The city of Punta Gorda ( was recognized by FBA as a “Florida Bike-Friendly Community.” Besides making a remarkable comeback from 2004’s Hurricane

Charley, city leaders, its business community and citizens chose to embrace the concept and implement its plan to provide a safe, efficient and enjoyable environment for cyclists and pedestrians.

Among the reasons FBA chose Punta Gorda for this designation is

the fact that earlier this year they became the first community in

Florida to offer a free bike loaner program. Their commitment to

completing Harborwalk, a 15-mile linear park that will circle the

city, and the numerous ongoing activities and efforts by

government, business, and residents alike to promote cycling for

enjoyment and function are other important factors. FBA is proud to honor the city of Punta Gorda!
